Meet Alison: a once-idealistic writer turned celebrity journalist, trying to figure out how she ended up middle-aged, in the film business, in front of an audience and not at all sure why. Has she died? Is this heaven? In this remarkable play by the same author as In On It, Monster, and Cul-de-Sac, Alison’s life spirals into chaos and tragedy. Left alone to re-experience the choices that framed her life, Alison rediscovers love that fades, hopes that die, and enduring friendship that offers the promise of redemption.
