An American Video Store

For anyone who grew up with Blockbuster which essentially is everyone I know, An American Video Store seeks to capture that bygone era of the brick and mortar movie renting experience. The story takes place over several years as we peek into the lives of two sisters Leah (Aidan Rees), Rachel (Kristin Morris) and John (Jeff Coppage), the proprietor of this particular Blockbuster Video location. Following these relationships and others Playwright/Director and Narrator Thomas J. Wortham sews together a narrative that comments on a range of topics from death and date night to persuading the clerk to erase those pesky late charges….and…dare I say it!?!?….Netflix. This play is a solid watch for anyone that ever found safety and refuge in the video store.
