Although he is in his early 20s now, Brian Dowd can’t shake his feelings of self-doubt and social awkwardness whenever he’s anywhere near Jerry Finnegan’s sister, Beth. He’s felt this way since the age of seven when her family moved in next door. Beth has no idea of his unrequited love and it’s do or die for Brian when he learns that she is about to be married. Determined to declare himself at last, he’s resolved to meet his fears head-on. After all, what’s he got to lose – except the love of his life!

The performances are Friday afternoon at 2 and everyone is welcome.
