    Iris is a recent college graduate feeling lost and isolated in her call-center job.  Shelly is a young, grieving widow living in the small town in which Iris's absent mother grew up.  When her outbound phone line reaches Shelly, Iris takes the synchronicity as a sign, traveling to the town and visiting with her estranged grandmother, Ruth.  As these three women grapple with the ghosts of their pasts, their journeys become increasingly intertwined, encircling others in the community who shoulder their own baggage.  Bound together by the human need to connect, their stories weave an exploration of identity, family, loss, and resilience.

    An ensemble piece, Outbound calls for five women and two men. In its current form it can be performed with or without an intermission.
