Share on Nextdoor

Oscar winners Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Fricker star as crusty Stella and her sweet partner Dot, a long-time couple who break Dot out of her nursing home and make a run for the Canadian border (and a legal gay marriage) with a beefcakey young hitchhiker (Ryan Doucette) along for the ride. Well-acted throughout, Cloudburst is highlighted by scenic locations and Stella’s hilariously foul mouth, which Dukakis employs to great effect.

Sun. Oct. 7, 5 p.m., Tampa Theatre.
