Failure: A Love Story

Clague Playhouse

Westlake, OH
Community Theatre

By: Philip Dawkins

May 12 - June 4, 2023

Show Description:

Follow Mortimer Mortimer as he falls in love with the three Fail sisters, Nelly, the youngest, Jenny June, the middlest, and Gerty, the eldest (in that order), as they live out their lives above the family clock repair shop near the Chicago River, before their time unexpectedly runs out. Tuneful songs, and a whimsical chorus follow this magical, musical farce where, in the end, the power of love is far greater than any individual’s successes or failures.
