I Will Not Go Gently

Written & Performed by Jennifer Childs

Directed by Harriet Power


A faded rock icon returns to the spotlight. A suburban mom tries to reclaim her glory days. A '70s TV superhero tries flying without a cape. In the theatrical style of Anna Deavere Smith, Lily Tomlin, and John Leguizamo, Jennifer Childs brings us a cast of characters who are straddling the divide between the past and the future—deadly sincere, impossibly hopeful, and ready to rock.


I Will Not Go Gently was a hit at 1812 Productions and will move to

Act II Playhouse in Ambler for a second production in January, 2017.
