Henry Gamble’s Birthday Party

HENRY GAMBLE’S BIRTHDAY PARTY is an exhilarating ensemble drama centered around the seventeenth birthday of megachurch preacher’s son Henry Gamble. At once a poignant coming-of-age tale and provocative portrait of community, riotous party movie and deeply moving family drama, many threads weave this vast tapestry. At the center of this world lies the confident, music-loving Henry, floating in a world of sexual possibility; his sister Autumn, caught between the spiritual and physical; preacher’s wife Kat, reeling from an affair with an older man and aching for her own identity; and, finally, Bob, evangelical star on the rise, typically optimistic, but sensing his family drifting away. Providing humorous and heartbreaking counterpoint to the Gambles story is a cast of characters from church and school, all trying to wade their way through life, spirituality and identity in the 21st century. Inspired by films as diverse as RACHEL GETTING MARRIED, RISKY BUSINESS and THE ICE STORM, bursting at the seams with music and throbbing with fundamental human emotions, HENRY GAMBLE’S BIRTHDAY PARTY will be an overwhelming experience that audiences will want to return to time and time again.
