Abby, a precocious emo-goth teenager, orchestrates a surprise reunion for her mother Tanya and birth father Tom, with the help of her mom's fiancé/healer John. Hoping to provoke long-lasting reconciliation between her parents before her high school graduation, Abby's plans completely derail when Tom arrives with his new girlfriend Alisha. Can this family confront their past traumas, "deal and heal?” Teen Dad subverts popular regional theatre "kitchen-sink beach house dramedy" to share a heartfelt, comedic exploration of generational trauma and recovery in a mixed-race Black and Latinx family.
This production contains adult themes including strong language, violence, racial trauma, and intimacy. This is a safe space intended to promote discourse about the human experience. Our Front of House can provide resources and support if needed. Please take care and enjoy the show.
