Local playwright Kimberly Demmary’s new play Seatbelts Required, is a rollercoaster of grief, amusement and heart. After their mother’s funeral, three sisters gather at the house they grew up in and try to come to terms with the destruction their mother brought to their lives. As the afternoon progresses, they hesitantly try to connect through remembered laughter and sorrow as harrowing memories of their childhoods are brought to the surface. As sometimes traumatic memories are brought to the surface, they struggle to realize that, though they have been wounded, they are connected by a deeply shared bond and they can only look to each other for healing.
“With shades of Albee’s Zoo Story, the first scene begins with light hearted banter, and gradually crescendos to an intense, almost volatile, powerful second act.” ~Talucan Times
