    I think it's so important to talk to kids about hard things. They have to figure out how to deal with grief and death, and hiding this unfortunate fact of life from them doesn't do them any favors. I got to see RIVER.SWAMP.CAVE.MOUNTAIN., and bring my kids to see it, when it was produced at Plan-B. It was engaging, thoughtful, and funny.

    A beautiful and necessary play for all ages but especially the young ones who need to understand and see other young people having big huge emotions that accompany grief and then they get to see people living through them! EXCELLENT!
