Somewhere in Philadelphia, Elliot has returned from Iraq and is struggling to find his place in the world again and put aside the demons that haunt him. Somewhere in a chat room, recovering addicts forge an unbreakable bond of support and love. The boundaries of love, family and community are stretched across, time, generations and cyberspace as birth families splinter and online families collide in this captivating new drama. Pulitzer Prize-finalist and Tony Award-winning author of the book for In The Heights as well as the upcoming adaptation of Like Water for Chocolate, Quiara Alegría Hudes was the 2008–2009 Aetna New Voices Fellow at Hartford Stage.
