He's recently divorced. She's newly widowed. He's a man who won't give up. She's a woman who won't give in. In a story that spans three decades, we travel with two unlikely companions who encounter each other at strange and inopportune times. When the time is finally right, will they be able to give in to their desires for courtship? Find out if a trip to the circus is what it takes to start over, again. The Detroit Free Press says of Tipping Point's production "The show is both life- and love-affirming . . .", while The New Monitor says of Mahard and Crawford, " . . . they are a sheer joy to watch."
