A beautifully spun, comedic, heart-wrenching story of an elderly woman and her 21-year-old grandson seeking respite from a recent tragedy. His visit extends until the unlikely pair builds a loving familial bond from the ground up and healing begins. Winner of the 2013 Obie Award: Best New American Play; 2013 Pulitzer Prize finalist.
