Show Description: HOLD ON will be the inaugural production at the NEW ANTRIM PLAYHOUSE. Lester Grey is a down and out musician who never achieved his rock star dreams. He lives with his sister, Dr. Maggie Grey, the CEO of a large pharmaceutical company with mental health struggles of her own. When Lester meets Maggie’s assistant, Brooke Avery, a single mom desperately trying to climb the corporate ladder, a mutual love of 90’s rock music leads to an unlikely romance and triggers Lester’s personal demons. Hang On runs approx. 90 minutes and will be performed without intermission. It is a play with music.
