Kate Danley, a USA Today Bestselling Author and Award Winning Playwright, has written a completely new work of theater. Danley has created a moving and emotionally charged one-act play. Late Shift, told in real-time, explores the ruts that individuals fall into, the insignificant day-to-day details that grow in significance with time, and the tragedy of people's unfulfilled goals while they wait for "The Moment." Bonnie has been a waitress on the late shift at Don's Diner for the past three decades. It is like a second home to her, and it gives her a sense of pride. Joe is running behind schedule on his first day on the job as a cook. As these two imperfect strangers meet while waiting for a 2:00 a.m. rush that may never materialize, they realize that goals and dreams arrive too late for some and that sometimes people are too late in their life to make a difference. Encore Theatre and Gallery presents a stunning two-hander with a unique world premiere, experiencing "Late Shift" in the form of Dinner Theatre on location at the famed Michael's Restaurant. An upscale steak and seafood restaurant with a rooftop bar in Birmingham's Parkside neighborhood. Encore Theatre collaborates with the acclaimed modern venue to provide "Late Shift" as an interactive theatre experience for one evening and two showings only. The restaurant's chef will create a unique menu for the occasion, and each show will be preceded by a cocktail hour. Tickets are available for purchase online at www.encorebham.org.
