"Some people need continuous change in order to feel vital and alive. Others are terrified of unsettling the peace that they have established. Southern Comforts is an exploration of the intimate workings of all relationships. Two-time O'Neill Playwrights Conference participant Kathleen Clark takes us on a journey of widow and widower who meet later in life and find a way into each other's hearts."
