Third Avenue PlayWorks (TAP) is opening its 2022 season with Slow Fooda comedy by Wendy MacLeod. TAP’s new artistic director, Jacob Janssenwill direct the cast of Alan Kopischke, Doug Mancheski and Claire Morkin.

When New York empty-nesters Irene (Morkin) and Peter (Kopischke) head to Palm Springs to celebrate a big anniversarythey’re envisioning a carefree trip full of rest and relaxation. Instead, they get stuck with a cargo van as their rental car, a nonfunctioning hot tub at the hotel and Stephen (Mancheski), a highly neurotic waiter at Dmitri’s Greek restaurant – the only establishment that seems to be open late on a Sunday evening. Will their shared desperation get them their spanakopita or end their marriage?

Slow Food will officially open May 12 after two preview performances. A pay-what-you-can preview will be held May 82 pm, with a final preview on May 11, 7:30 pm. Donations from the pay-what-you-can preview will benefit Lakeshore CAP.

Performances will continue Wednesday-Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons through June 5. Learn more and purchase tickets ($35) at thirdavenueplayworks.org or at TAP’s box office, 239 N. 3rd Ave. in Sturgeon Bay.
