About the play: A child dies and a family shatters. Two parents grapple with the language of loss as they fight to pull their family back together. The couple navigates their new reality using dark humor, disjointed poetry, and rampant clichés-with the occasional visit from the Tooth Fairy and G.I. Joe.
A haunting, hilarious, and heartbreaking look into expressions of grief, directed by Andrew Peters, MFA Directing candidate, Class of 2016.
