“Kristine Thatcher has written an important play, and it has landed in the hands of exactly the right theater company for its world premiere.”  

                              -Newcity on The Bloodhound Law at City Lit, 2015

 

32-year-old Bridget has come back home for a visit to Lansing, Michigan from New York City, where she has been getting by as an actress.  She stays with her widowed grandmother, Hannah, whose forgetfulness and declining physical abilities have begun to concern Bridget’s uncle Matt. But in her own way, Hannah may just be the strongest member of the family. 

Thatcher’s play, set in 1982, is a study in the sometimes unexpected ways families can support each other as they adapt to life changes and make peace with the past.

Directed by Terry McCabe.
