Tony and Academy Award-winner Joel Grey directs On Borrowed Time, a magical fantasy about the love between a little boy and his Gramps. When Death himself pays them a visit in the form of a man named Mr. Brink, Gramps outwits him—trapping Brink in a tree and refusing to let him down. This too-rarely-seen American masterpiece is ripe for rediscovery.

 

Joel Grey won Tony and Academy Awards for his performance as the iconic Emcee in Cabaret; he is one of only nine actors to be honored with both awards for the same role.

With Two River’s production, Grey will revisit the play in which he made his debut as an actor at the age of 9.

Paul Osborn’s other works include the play Morning’s at Seven and film adaptations of East of Eden and South Pacific.
