Director TJ Tincher
Director Tincher describes the play:

"Send Me no Flowers is a show about misunderstandings and the lengths that one man will go to for the woman he loves.  George Kimball is a hypochondriac with a problem, he thinks he’s dying.  When he overhears his doctor talking about another patient, he immediately assumes its about himself.  

"He decides to become proactive in his 'last few weeks' and plans for the eventual life his wife will have to live without him.  He even goes so far as to find the perfect suitor for her after he’s gone.  With the help of his constantly buzzed neighbor, Arnold, George will realize all his worrying and pills won’t save him from the inevitable realization that he’s been living more than he ever has."

Stage Manager for the production is Mike Mitchell.
