is a vivid, hopeful, honest and unexpectedly witty portrait of a family searching for what remains possible in the most impossible of all situations.
Becca and Howie exist in the wake of a shocking, sudden loss. Becca finds pain in the familiar while Howie finds comfort. The shifts come in abrupt, unforeseen moments. As off track as they are, they find their way to a life that still holds the potential for beauty, laughter and happiness.
An intimate glimpse into two people learning to re-engage with each other and a world that has been tilted off its axis.
is as poignant as a love letter.
“GRADE: A! A transcendent and deeply affecting new play, which shifts perfectly from hilarity to grief.”
- Entertainment Weekly
“You feel vaguely guilty for laughing, even as your laughter relieves you...This is one smart play."
- Philadelphia Inquirer
