A comedy about loneliness. A Kafkaesque world where everything is askew; it has been raining for 40 days, the queues at City Hall get longer and longer, holes appear and no one knows who is digging them. A world inhabited by vulnerable, awkward, lonely people; Karl the ex-con, Frances, the beyond-middle-age virgin, Ronald the nerd, Ramblin’ Rose, the late night deejay.. Human-kind at our most poignant and achingly familiar.


“Here is a great deal of fun and as much sweetness as sadness. Theatre Columbus has a winner; Lonely Nights should stick around.”

– Robert Cushman, The National Post
