The new show at the Old Globe theatre, “Bethany” opens this week in their Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre. This new drama by Laura Marks follows Crystal and Gary, who live in a nice home in the suburbs that just so happens, not to be theirs. But this story follows not just how they got to this point, but how to get your life back on track, and how far Crystal is willing to go for someone named Bethany.
Accompanying this play the Old Globe has a few events and forums to help supplement the theatre going experience. See which one (or ones) interest you!
