On The Greenbelt is an exploration of family, love, memory and the question of "How do we process loss and grief?" Jules saw something terrible in the Idaho hospital the night her mom died, but she'll never say what it was. Not to her ex, Olivia, and especially not to her brother, Jake, who keeps trying to convince her to go with him to the Greenbelt to spread their mom's ashes with their father, Alan. But try as she might, Jules can't shake the memories of the past that haunt her like a gin-soaked hangover, and as the day unravels the past events surrounding her mother's death come to light.

Comments Strawdog Artistic Director Kamille Dawkins, "We really enjoy the story behind Karissa's funny and wildly unpredictable family drama. It dives deep into emotional themes of love and illness with a fresh and inspiring look at family. We are also thrilled to have ensemble member Jamie Vann return to our stage and reunite with director Jonathan Berry."
