Westerly’s Granite Theatre will soon undergo its first major creative shift in nearly twenty years, when artistic director David Jepson and assistant artistic director Beth Jepson, pack up and retire to Florida. They’ve been at the theatre since 2000, but before they go they’re acting together one last time, portraying the elderly couple made famous by Henry Fonda and Katharine Hepburn in the 1981 summer drama. I haven’t seen it, but the review in the Westerly Sun notes the “audible sighs and sobs, prolonged applause and standing ovation” on opening night.
