A touching story of loss and life

A  heartwarming tale of family love, loss and life comes to Scripps Ranch when Scripps Ranch Theatre (SRT) presents “And Neither Have I Wings to Fly,” Nov. 8-Dec. 8 at the theatre’s home on the campus of Alliant International University.

The play tells the story of a family dealing with the loss of its matriarch after a long illness. One daughter struggles on to decide if she’s making the right decision as her wedding nears. Her sister had been hiding a scholarship application and now has to decide whether to pursue that or stay to care for her grief-stricken father while also dealing with emerging feelings for a new man in her life.

Written by Ann Noble, the play was first staged in Chicago in 1995. It was there and then that Jacquelyn Ritz, director of the SRT production, first saw the play and liked it so much that she returned the next night to see it again. It was Ritz, herself, who suggested the play to SRT Artistic Director Jill Drexler and lobbied for its addition to this year’s season. In lauding the play’s script, Ritz described the characters as captivating.

“All of the characters become very close to you,” she said. “We can all identify with at least one, if not a couple, of them because there’s two generations – the parents and the young adults – and there’s this group of seven people who are all pursuing something. They’re all on this journey where in a week they get to know each other a little better and change each other’s lives.”

While the play deals with serious issues like loss of a spouse and mother, Irish storytelling throughout the play and familial comedy add laughs to the story.

“So many of (the characters) love to make each other laugh, so there’s humor in it, but it’s not a comedy,” Ritz said. “The laugher comes from real human connection.”

Ultimately, however, it’s a story about life, relationships and the struggle of grief.

“So much of this play is about forgiveness, having honest and beautiful relationships with the people around you, and being strong and digging deep to figure out how to keep going when the world gets dark,” Ritz said.

The cast of the play includes Walter Ruskin as Peter Donnelly, Sara Jane Nash as (the ghost of) Moira Donnelly, Kate Rose Reynolds as Eveline Donnelly, Katee Drysdale as Kathleen Donnelly, and Paul Eddy as Charlie Doyle.

Taking the reins of the play is Ritz, who has previously directed “Accomplice” and “Communicating Doors” at Scripps Ranch Theatre.

Scripps Ranch Theatre is on the campus of Alliant International University, 9783 Avenue of Nations. “And Neither Have I Wings to Fly” begins its run Nov. 8 and will play Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. through Dec. 8. To reserve seats, call (858) 578-7728. For ticket price information, visit scrippsranchtheatre.org.

  4. Przedstawiciele władz mają opowiadać w poniedziałek o sukcesie, jakim według PKP jest nowy dworzec. Obiekt za prawie 5 mln zł ma poczekalnię z dwoma rzędami siedzeń przytwierdzonych do podłogi. To dość niedużo, jeśli na peronie więcej miejsc do siedzenia jest obok wiaty, a nie pod nią. W niedzielę w poczekalni stały jeszcze trzy proste stoły i kilka dodatkowych krzeseł, ale nie wyglądały na takie, które miałyby zostać tutaj na stałe, bo nie były trwale zamocowane.

    Online gambling is legal in Australia in the sense that locals are free to play on any online gambling site available to them; it is only online gambling operators who are restricted from allowing Australians to play on their sites. This leaves plenty of offshore online casinos to choose from. However, that is not the only option for Australian gamblers looking to play online. Sitemap There are many different factors to take into consideration when it comes to choosing the ideal online casino. The Casino Gorilla has investigated and reviewed hundreds of online casinos accepting Australian players, and so knows exactly what to look for. The following list gives some examples of the kind of information that the big guy seeks out before recommending an online casino to Australian players: With that in mind, we created a list of the top online casinos specifically designed for Aussies abroad, all featuring similar online pokies and casino games to what you’d typically find at your local gambling establishment.

    my breakfast coming yet again to read additional news.

  13. Do you have a spam issue on this site; I also am a blogger,
    and I was wanting to know your situation; many of us have developed some nice methods and
    we are looking to trade techniques with other
    folks, be sure to shoot me an e-mail if interested.

  14. Hi there, There’s no doubt that your blog might be having
    browser compatibility issues. Whenever I take a look
    at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in IE, it’s got some
    overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Besides that, fantastic website!

  15. Having read this I thought it was very enlightening.

    I appreciate you spending some time and effort to put this content together.

    I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both
    reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  16. I’ve been surfing online greater than three hours nowadays, but
    I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article
    like yours. It’s lovely worth sufficient for me.

    In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the net can be
    a lot more useful than ever before.

  17. This design is wicked! You most certainly know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  18. Currently it appears like Drupal is the preferred blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
