What happens when two polar opposites are forced to get to know each other? Visiting Mr. Green shows us that you can’t judge a book by its cover. This story of two men, one young and one old, will touch your heart and have you smiling as they learn to focus on their commonalities rather than their differences.
Jeff Baron’s Visiting Mr. Green continues this weekend at Ensemble Stage with performances scheduled for Aug. 12-14.
Elderly Mr. Green wanders into traffic and is almost hit by a car driven by young Ross Gardiner. The court sentences the young man to helping the recent widower once a week for six months. And so begins the hilarious, yet often moving, “oil and water” relationship between a pair of cantankerous polar opposites who, as they get to know each other, come to understand stereotypes are based more on fear than fact.
