Chloe loves Robbie. Everybody does. But Robbie loves Chloe back. They are the star triple-threat couple of their high school drama club and have dreams of their future success together in Musical Theatre (or straight plays, if Musical Theatre doesn’t work out). But — speaking of straight — suddenly Robbie wonders if he’s gay. And Chloe begins to wonder, too. And what does that mean for their future together?

This brand new comedy was first seen as a short piece in Loud & Queer 2014, produced by Workshop West Playwright's Theatre and Guys In Disguise. After seven years with Northern Light Theatre as artistic Associate, we are delighted to have Ellen return to expand her original piece into a full length play and world-premiere of EVERYBODY LOVES ROBBIE!

Mae, a struggling young actress, loses both of her parents to cancer. Peggy- her kind, peacemaker mother- dies of cancer in 1995. Six years later, when Mae moves back home to care for her terminally ill father, she imagines moments of reconciliation and grace. But unlike Peggy, Al does not handle the treatment with any sort of grace and Mae struggles with her role as his caregiver. As her father's health declines, his obsession with the Sci-Fi Network and creating a machine to deliver him to another dimension intensifies. Mae summons memories of her mother for guidance, and with humor and compassion strives to reach her final goal...to give her father a good death.
