I haven’t had a chance to see this one, but I’m pretty interested in it. It kind of got panned in EYE, but several enthusiastic commenters explained just how much they disagreed with the reviewer and encouraged folks to go check it out. That always makes something more intriguing to me, and I really do hope I get a chance to go see it.
Luckily, you folks get the chance to do so for free.

NANA – Gramma baby-sits for the first time…. is this Really a good idea?
Nana (high heels and tight waist) spills irreverent views freely with her cocktail. She may be wicked with her wit, but this modern Nana’s yanked the chain of the repressed women of her lineage.
NANA tackles sex and generational damage with edgy humour and shocking honesty. And then there’s hope.
Written and performed by Judith Cockman, whose work has inspired animated response amongst audience members in both Toronto and Los Angeles.
Directed by Raymond O’Neill, recipient of the 2002 Tyrone Guthrie Award. Mr. O’Neill has acted in over 25 plays for the Stratford Shakespeare Festival and compiled and directed Stratford’s 2004 production "Ruth Draper on Tour" starring Lally Cadeau.
