It turns out that true love knows no bounds, family roots run true and there are a few things red wine and a bong hit won't fix. Jeanette and Neil live off the land in a yurt on the site of their Northern California home, recently destroyed by a massive fire. Neil is dying. Jeannette's long-lost cousin and her husband are coming from the Midwest for a visit after losing their daughter. In a love story and comedic drama that plumbs societal, religious and ethical divides, the couples explore their respective life perspectives with finesse, humor, honesty and respect.
The World Premiere production at Los Angeles' Geffen Playhouse won the 2007 Ted Schmitt Award for Outstanding New Play. It also won a 2008 Ovation Award for Best New Play after its production at San Francisco's American Conservatory Theatre.
