The Unexpected 3rd

by Kathryn Grody

directed by Timothy Near

Deep into her 3rd (and final) act of being a person, Kathryn Grody investigates an eclectic, devastating, and hilarious potpourri of shocking discoveries as she finds herself — at 75 — becoming not quite old, but elder. Another Boomer that didn’t think the aging process would apply to her, Grody enters elderhood with equal parts empowerment and bewilderment. Marching onward through crumbling democracy, a boiling planet, and an increasingly dead roster of friends and colleagues, she is buoyed by discovering parts of herself she didn’t know were in hiding, waiting for this period to bloom. Mother, artist, wife, grandmother, friend, and accidental social media influencer, Kathryn Grody is astonished with her life, your life, and the stunning, deeply-felt, heart-breaking impermanence of it all.
