A guest production by Ruby Slippers Theatre.
Vancouver, BC - Is there ever a good time to reconnect with the daughter whose life you ruined? Leda is a recovering alcoholic who has been visiting her therapist, Carolyn, for some time. She has a life-changing secret she needs to share with her estranged and zealously religious daughter, Annie, but she doesn't know how. When Carolyn finally gives Leda concrete advice, the resulting actions lead all three women on a collision course with their all-too-human need for certainty and connection.
