A play by Deanna Jent, "FALLING" is the exploration of the dynamic and complicated reality of a family with an autistic, young son. When a relative comes to visit, the entire family is thrown out of equilibrium, with everyone trying to balance what is best for the family and what is best for them. The play bravely speaks a truth about love and family and about hopes and dreams. It asks, "How do you love someone who is difficult to love?" This play is a heartfelt and nuanced family drama with dark humor. Tickets will be available for purchase on the Jacoby Arts Center website in early March.
"FALLING soars. The play packs a powerful punch." --- NY POST
Bankside Rep began as an idea by a group of like-minded theatre directors, actors, and educators many years ago. The desire was to start a professional theatre company in the Riverbend region of Illinois – a place where these artists could produce thought-provoking work that would also entertain, uplift, and inspire. In 2015, the six founding members began talks with Jacoby Arts Center in Alton, Illinois. Jacoby quickly took the group under its wing, providing a theatre home for the company. By May of 2015, Bankside Repertory Theatre Company had officially formed and was in residence at Jacoby.
