Ben Lyons is dying. When his wife, Rita, and grown children gather to say goodbye, they learn that, despite being a family, each of them is utterly isolated. Afraid of closeness and afraid of solitude, they are propelled into foreign territory - human connection. Tony Award-winners Linda Lavin (OTHER DESERT CITIES, "Alice") and Dick Latessa (HAIRSPRAY, CABARET) lead the cast of this outrageously funny and poignant new play about a family you will not forget, from the author of THE FOOD CHAIN and PTERODACTYLS.
