The Tin Woman
The Napa Valley Performing Arts Center at Lincoln Theater and Valley Players presented The Tin Woman by Sean Grennan February 28 – March 8, 2020 at the Napa Valley Performing Arts Center at Lincoln Theater in Yountville.
Instead of relishing life after her heart transplant, Joy enters a downward spiral, unsure whether she truly deserves a second chance. Meanwhile, Alice and Hank mourn the loss of their son, Jack, whose heart was used to save Joy. At a friend’s urging, Joy tracks down Jack’s family to find closure. But are Alice, Hank, and their daughter Sammy ready to accept Jack’s death? Based on a true story, The Tin Woman uses humor and pathos to explore loss, family, and what it means to be given new life.
Directed by Debbie Baumann. Featuring Bridget Folan, Walter Hamlin, Patte Quinn, Dan Monez, Paige Whitney-White and Christine Cawley.
