    This play is basically an attempt to answer the whole meaning of life question but it's done in such an interesting way. It's a play that shows how tragedy can connect and cause bonds to form. Wonderful play with great roles for women of various ages.

    A beautiful play, evocative, haunting, and powerful. Lovely blend of the ethereal, the real, the tragic and the hopeful, with great challenges for good actors and creative directors. Get it on stage soon!
