About the Show

The Mineral Theater Company
Written by Scott Caan
Directed by Val Lauren

Opening Night is June 3 at 7pm.

When Jacob (Scott Caan) discovers that his girlfriend Holly (Robyn Cohen) might be pregnant, he drags his friend Frank (Val Lauren) into the maddening wormhole that is his psyche, a venture that lands them on the doorstep of Lulu (Melanie Griffith): Jacob's mother and the matriarch of madness herself. However, Holly and her friend Rachel (Bre Blair) are one step ahead of them. No Way Around But Through is a dark, thoughtful and quirky romantic comedy about facing the inevitable dysfunctions of life and love head-on, and a reminder to never let where you've been get in the way of where you're going.
