I saw The Velocity of Autumn, written by Eric Coble, this week and was it groundbreaking? No. But I enjoyed it nevertheless. It was a lovely 90 minutes with no intermission and I got to watch the mesmerizing Stephen Spinella go at it with the hilarious Estelle Parons the entire time. While surrounded by molotov cocktails. 

The Velocity of Autumn was about a mother at the end of her life wanting to have control of her life and when it ended and where she ended it, and her estranged son who comes to talk her out of hurting herself and others. 

While certainly not groundbreaking, it’s a different kind of play with interesting characters portrayed by two fantastic actors.
