Over the River and Through the Woods

by Terrance McArthur

Some families say “I love you.” Some families don’t. Some say it, but without words. In Joe DiPietro’s Over the River and Through the Woods, now playing at the Reedley Opera House, love is expressed in food. You feed the ones you love. Lasagna or a sandwich, it’s all love.

Over the River and Through the Woods. Is there anyone who cannot finish the next line in that lyric? Right, To Grandmother’s House We Go. If, instead of one grandmother, you have two, and two grandfathers as well, and they are all Italian, and you are expected for dinner every single Sunday, you know what the play, often shortened to OTR, by Joe DiPietro is all about. This is the third production in the current season presented by The Visalia Community Players at the Ice House Theatre.

We have families. We love them…and they drive us crazy. Isn’t that wonderful? Over the River and Through the Woods, a play by Joe DiPietro, is now onstage at the Good Company Players’ 2nd Space Theatre. It’s about families. Isn’t that wonderful?
