The following description comes from the event organizer.
From acclaimed director Alexander Payne, THE HOLDOVERS follows a curmudgeonly instructor (Paul Giamatti) at a New England prep school who is forced to remain on campus during Christmas break to babysit the handful of students with nowhere to go. Eventually he forms an unlikely bond with one of them -- a damaged, brainy troublemaker (newcomer Dominic Sessa) -- and with the school’s head cook, who has just lost a son in Vietnam (Da’Vine Joy Randolph).
See Portland based composer Mark Orton, on hand, with a live ensemble to perform selections from his new score for THE HOLDOVERS on 11/11 at 7:30pm. Tickets can be found here.
