Brief Synopsis:
Kylie, a young prima ballerina with a torn ACL and a chip on her shoulder, and Esther, an elderly widowed Holocaust survivor estranged from her only child, are both patients of renowned African-American physical therapist Mike Sheffield. When Sheffield decides that the two women should share appointments, attachments form, conflicts erupt, secrets surface, and lives unravel. A play about how we heal … and how we don’t. World Premiere in partnership with AACT NewPlayFest!
