great acting, especially Joy Carlin, but all of them. Interesting plot and setting; loved the exploration of changing family relationships

Description

Six women, three generations, one family. Over multiple holidays, a family gathers in a home none of them expects to long survive the rising sea. They do chores, text each other, and dance. They watch the birds and watch each other, while struggling for loyalty, legacy, and turf. By the end, everything has shifted and a new generation is in charge, but of what? Our Practical Heaven, the third Aurora mainstage production to develop from our annual Global Age Project, addresses the changing tides of communication, gender roles, and society in a place where even the notions of home and family remain fluid.
