The King may have left the building, but he’s front and centre in this wild new play from local writer Sharon Bajer. Tina is hunting down her ex to be at the bedside of their comatose daughter Mary, whom he’d never, finally unloading her woes on an Elvis impersonator in a seedy bar. Meanwhile, Mary has made a friend on the other side – and he has great sideburns!  From the writer of Molly's Veil, this play tackles everything from fate to the pull of family -- the reason why Elvis will never really die.

Playwright Sharon Bajer talks about her newest play.
