by Caryl Churchill | Directed by Jacqueline Reid | November 29-December 15
Sally, Vi, Lena, and Mrs. Jarrett gather in the backyard on one of the few sunny afternoons. They come together to discuss things. They discuss the absurd, the sublime, the ridiculous, and the most remarkable events of life on earth. Cloaked in mystery, what appears as the ordinary labyrinth of women's middle class existences slowly unravels into a profound expression of fear shared by the many, but revealed by the few.
