About This Show
Twelve Batches to Midnight is the second play in Lauren Reinhard’s ‘Woods Cannon.’ A grandmother, Robin, and her granddaughter, Poppy, live together in a house outside of time. The play explores the relationship between the two women and dissects the disappointments of the past to uncover what is to come. Robin and Poppy walk a daunting precipice above an uncertain future as the timer on the twelfth batch of cookies comes closer to ringing. As they struggled to remember those who have gone, they fight, laugh, sing, bake, eat, host ghosts, take naps, bleed, write recipes, write and rewrite history, all in the kitchen.
