The Quality of Life - Off-Broadway

Bill and Dinah, a conservative Christian couple reeling from the sudden loss of their daughter, decide to reconnect with their freewheeling cousins, Jeanette and Neil. They, too, are dealing with hardship, including a diagnosis of terminal cancer and the loss of their home to wildfire, but remain surprisingly upbeat. Something is amiss and an unexpected turn challenges everyone’s convictions about life and death. In The Quality of Life, award-winner Jane Anderson artfully ventures into the depths of moral, ethical, and religious quandaries with humor, empathy, and truth.
