THE STORY: On a quiet night at Lou’s Bar, two kindred spirits seek solace as they navigate changing times and relationships past. From the author of The Outgoing Tide comes an intimate exploration of friendship, forgiveness, and the longing for companionship that grows with the passage of time.

This volume contains both the original three-hander (2 men, 1 women) and a two-hander (1 man, 1 woman) alternative version.
“STELLA AND LOU is a play about late-in-life loneliness (and depression), themes that are not often explored in the theater, for all of their ubiquity…Refreshing…Potentially devastating, mostly because it feels so very familiar.” —Chicago Tribune. “In this and his other plays, Bruce Graham demonstrates a rare talent for writing older than his own experience.” —
