By Jordan Tannahill
One year after a tragedy, two couples sit down to dinner. Far from finding the closure they seek, the dinner strips bare their good intentions to reveal layers of parental, sexual, and political hypocrisy. A funny and moving exploration of a hot button issue, rendered in dynamic dialogue by an exciting young writer. Directed by Katrina Dunn and starring Touchstone favorite Kerry Sandomirsky.
“truly transcendent theatre . . . Get tickets soon. And bring a handkerchief.”

“If it takes a village to raise a child, then who’s to blame when one falls by the wayside? That’s the question lurking at the heart of Jordan Tannahill’s searing, unforgettable drama. There are no easy answers to be found here, only the shattered realities of two families struggling to put a terrible ordeal in the past.” *****
