Shoot Me When…

By Ruben Grijalva

Directed by Susi Damilano

Commissioned by San Francisco Playhouse


When Jackie’s health takes a turn for the worse, her daughters take her to Tahoe for one last hedonistic romp while she can still enjoy that sort of thing. They drink her favorite wines, eat her favorite foods, and dance to her favorite songs, celebrating a life lived on her own terms. The last hurrah is going perfectly, until Jackie picks up a lonely widower at a casino bar, shaking up the party and her own future plans.
