UpStage Theatre Company is proud to present I LOVE YOU NANA, the third production of its eleventh season. Written by Christine Houston creator of the 1980's hit NBC comedy 227; this two-act comedy with a serious tone reveals how events in childhood can affect adult relationships with elderly family members.

I'm excited to have this great cast on stage to tell such a powerful story."
