Estelle Parsons stars in The Velocity of Autumn

Eric Coble’s new two-character play, The Velocity of Autumn, will bow on Broadway in spring 2013 with a cast led by Academy Award winner Estelle Parsonsand two-time Tony winner Stephen Spinella.

The Velocity of Autumn swirls around 80-year-old Alexandra, an artist facing the indignities of old age and her family’s insistence on moving her to a nursing home.  With nothing to lose, Alexandra has locked herself in her Brooklyn brownstone with a pile of Molotov cocktails and is now in a standoff with her children and the police.  When Alexandra is visited by her youngest son Chris – who has climbed into her second floor window ending a 20-year absence from her life – in the blink of an eye the emotional bombs start detonating.
