Michigan's vibrant arts scene is renowned for its innovative productions, and this fall, the Planet Ant Theatre, Inc. is gifting us a brilliantly dark existential comedy: Grandma's Basement. Staged in the intimate setting of Ant Hall, this play delves deep into universal themes interlaced with a humorous twist on marijuana, making it a must-see for both theatre and cannabis enthusiasts.

About the Play

Penned and directed by the talented Abigail Jaske, Grandma's Basement is set in the not-so-distant past of 2008. The narrative unfolds in suburbia, focusing on Debbie, a dedicated "Honor's" English student. Following her first encounter with cannabis, Debbie embarks on an unexpected journey, plunging the audience into a hilarious yet contemplative world that blurs the lines between reality, the metaphysical, and the downright surreal.

The intriguing premise promises more than just a few laughs. As described by Jaske, the play aims to challenge its audience, tackling thought-provoking topics like life, death, existence, and, naturally, marijuana's impact on perception.
