by Bruce Graham
Gunner is beginning to forget words and getting confused. Torn between his wife’s desire to move them from their beloved home in Chesapeake Bay and tormented by the menacing grip of an aging mind, he hatches an unorthodox plan to secure his uncertain future. A touching family drama sprinkled with surprising humor. An insightful story by award-winning playwright Bruce Graham, author of In Tandem’s break out hit, Any Given Monday.
Featuring (from left to right) James Pickering (Gunner), Susan Sweeney (Peg) and Simon Provan (Jack):

Community Partner for The Outgoing Tide:
DRAW WRITE HERE!, created by Helene Fischman, brings together local artists, writers & DIY Chamber Music for this special collaborative event. Each has seen the In Tandem Theatre production of THE OUTGOING TIDE and used it as muse for creative response in their medium. Join us for a unique, one-time-only cross-disciplinary amalgam of stories, artwork and improvised music. The performance has sprung from the heart of the theatre, yet reaches beyond its walls.
This show is supported in part by a grant from the Milwaukee Arts Board and the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin.
