Mae returns home to help take care of Dad and — maybe (a little) — herself. Written by 2014 P73 Playwriting Fellow Clare Barron, directed by Obie Award winner Anne Kauffman, and featuring Tony Award nominee Reed Birney (Casa Valentina, “House of Cards”) and Brooke Bloom (Somewhere Fun, “Louie”), You Got Older is a tender and darkly comic new play about family, illness, and cowboys — and how to remain standing when everything you know comes crashing down around you.
