BJ Jones comments, "I'm so happy to bring our frequent colleagues Rondi Reed and Fran Guinan back to Northlight Theatre's Interplay program, reading Adam Szymkowicz's touching piece Such Small Hands. Adam deals with the subject of loss and love with such maturity and sensitivity and Rondi and Fran bring the characters to life with their characteristic truth and wisdom. It is a privilege to work with them again."
