    This domestic dramedy taking place during the Cuban Missile Crisis, imagining an inevitable nuclear attack, an alternative 1962, will make you ask - Who would you not want to take shelter with underground? Spouse, a certain friend? An uncertain future begs the question.
    This play would keep you audience in suspense and entertained.

    In this piece, Lam balances imaginative history and interesting characters to create ask interesting questions about love, marriage, and tipping points. I saw - and enjoyed - it at the 2019 Midwest Dramatists Conference, check it out!

    Fun play! Just saw a staged reading at Midwest Dramatists Conference. Alt-history + drama + a bit of absurdist drama. Title works on so many levels. Lam clearly loves these characters.
