What are we here for? Is time a friend or an enemy? Do we all eventually end up in the same place, but take different routes to get there? This funny, moving, and thought-provoking new play, written and directed by Lucille Lortel and Obie Award-winner Will Eno, challenges the notion of what really matters and recognizes the importance of lifeâ€™s simple pleasures. (All of which might sound dreary, but thereâ€™s a chance this will be a really good experience.)
