"Village Players" "Bloor West Village Players" "Village Playhouse" "Runnymede theatre" theatre theater Nested "Liz Best" zoomIt’s been a long time coming but Elaine and David have sold the family home and are moments away from becoming empty nesters. Their three children are almost settled, Grandma Rose is moving to a retirement home and they’re about to start the next chapter of their lives. But what happens when one parent is more ready to move than the other? What happens when the kids want to remain kids? And where does Grandma Rose keep disappearing to? Nested begs to ask – Do kids ever really grow up and is parenting ever really finished? 


  • Elaine Richardson – 50’s/early 60’s. Mother of three. Organized, efficient and seemingly unsentimental.
  • David Richardson – 50’s/early 60’s. Elaine’s husband. Happy. The yin to Elaine’s yang.
  • Michael Richardson – 20’s. The youngest. Procrastinator and sometimes trouble-maker. He’s invariably eating something.
  • Lorie Richardson – 20’s. The middle child. Dramatic and attention-seeking.
  • Blaine Richardson – 20’s. The eldest. Soon to be married. The “responsible” one.
  • Rose Robinson – 80’s. Elaine’s mother. Walking encyclopedia of the Royal family. Quirky. Lots of secrets.
