    Beautifully written, this play is so authentically true for so many and we see how two grandmothers attempt to keep a family strong despite the upheaval. Excellent work!

    How do you share family moments when you're no longer family? Both funny and sad, "Commencement" is a fresh, realistic take on how the end of a marriage might affect the people usually considered to be on the periphery.
