Screening, The Farewell - Hopewell Theater

Friday August 23, 2019
7:00 PM

Opens Friday, August 23! Also showing on August 24, 25, 28, and 29.

In this funny, uplifting tale based on an actual lie, Chinese-born, U.S.-raised Billi (Awkwafina) reluctantly returns to Changchun to find that, although the whole family knows their beloved matriarch, Nai-Nai, has been given mere weeks to live, everyone has decided not to tell Nai Nai herself. To assure her happiness, they gather under the joyful guise of an expedited wedding, uniting family members scattered among new homes abroad. As Billi navigates a minefield of family expectations and proprieties, she finds there’s a lot to celebrate: a chance to rediscover the country she left as a child, her grandmother’s wondrous spirit, and the ties that keep on binding even when so much goes unspoken. With The Farewell, writer/director Lulu Wang has created a heartfelt celebration of both the way we perform family and the way we live it, masterfully interweaving a gently humorous depiction of the good lie in action with a richly moving story of how family can unite and strengthen us, often in spite of ourselves.

Always … Patsy Cline - Bucks County Playhouse

Friday August 23, 2019
8:00 PM

August 9 - September 7

Based on a true-story, Always … Patsy Cline is a showcase of 27 songs including “Crazy,” “I Fall to Pieces” and many more! After hearing Cline on the radio in 1957, housewife Louise Seger became an immediate, avid fan. A chance meeting at a concert brought them face to face. Over a pot of coffee, and through their subsequent letters, they forged a bond that would last until Cline’s tragic death in 1963. Always … Patsy Cline is a valentine to their friendship and a tribute to a great American music icon.
