Arrive promptly. Late comers are escorted to the business office, given a chair and then view a monitor until entering at intermission. I learned this the hard way!

Quotes & Highlights

“It’s a really beautiful little jewel of a piece that’s entertaining in the comedy and taps into our sense of humanity.” —


Written by Allison Moore 

Directed by Jessica Heidt 

Hannah is trying desperately to hold the façade of her perfect life together, even as her husband mysteriously calls in sick to work day after day, they struggle with infertility, and Hannah herself is on the verge of being laid off. When Hannah’s sister appears on their doorstep, she brings with her a feisty, renegade attitude and an illicit package that sends the family on an odyssey into some of the quirkier corners of Minneapolis, and into the heart of their deepest fears. Jessica Heidt directs this comedy about surviving and transcending, inspired by the 2007 collapse of the Mississippi River Bridge in Minneapolis.
