About This Production

When Brian first sent me a draft of this play, I was enthralled by its beautiful, poetic, complex, and compelling unfolding of a brother and sister's difficult reunion at their mother's funeral. We worked together on a workshop reading for New Leaf's Treehouse Reading Series, where Brian made some of the most fearless revisions I've encountered during a short-process collaboration. Not only was I thrilled to dig further into the story and characters in our full production, this was also an opportunity for our collaborative team to realize a new level of transformation of our Lincoln Park Cultural Center home.
