Description

by Bill Cain

directed by Kent Nicholson

A world premiere co-production with Berkeley Repertory Theatre

Cast: Aaron Blakely, Linda Gehringer, Leo Marks, Tyler Pierce

Writers are told to write what they know. But as Bill Cain discovers in writing about his own family, sometimes those we are closest to are the biggest mysteries of all. From the writer of Equivocation comes a beautiful new play taken from Cain’s own experiences caring for his dying mother. He asks the questions that speak to the heart of every family: What will never change…and what has to? A Jesuit priest as well as a playwright, Cain brings a fascinating view to this simple, powerful illustration of why the details of our lives and loves matter.

The show contains mild profanity.
