About the Play

Ten year old Kai is given a magical crystal door-knob by his grandfather that enables him to travel through space and time to see future events in his life. The further along he goes, the less he feels like he's seeing into his future, but more that he is living life as most people do; all too quickly. Both poignantly sad and zany, Pulitzer Prize finalist Jordan Harrison expands on the notion that life is too short to miss any moment of it.

What critics have to say about it:

"Painfully universal...a magical ride through time and space that serves as a stealthy extended metaphor for the power of imagination and storytelling." - WFPL

"Charming, exciting and full of childlike wonder, Harrison’s play is a magical, breathtaking trip." - Chicago Theatre Review

"The coming-of-age story is nothing new, but playwright Jordan Harrison has created a refreshingly adventurous ride with his new play “The Grown-Up”.. “The Grown-Up” a mystical and invigorating experience...Courier Journal
