On stage

Tipping point presents ‘Tracy Jones’

Tracy Jones learns what is in a name at the latest
production of Tipping Point Theatre in Northville.
What's in a name?  Audiences at the latest Tipping Point theatre production of Tracy Jones may find out during performances of Stephen Kaplan's new work. 

Heroine Tracy Jones has always wished that she didn't share a full name with almost 7,000 other individuals in the U.S. alone. If only she could have been born with a name like Constance Rumplemeyer then her life would be just as different and exciting as her name. In a last-ditch effort for human connection, she seeks comfort from the many individuals who seem to have being 'Tracy Jones' all figured out by announcing a party for those who share the same name.

The party date has arrived, the 189 women named Tracy Jones in her state were invited, and mass marketing was implemented in as many ways as she could imagine. Tracy finds herself awaiting the arrival of her guests at the Jones Street: Bar & Grill, anxious for answers and some solace to her seemingly lost individuality.

Tracy Jones will continue through Sunday, July 24.
