With a knock at the door, Nora is launched back into a household she helped burn to the ground 15 years before. But even after all this time, family ties cinch tighter than expected, and she discovers that confronting people she hurt in the past takes courage.

A provocative and surprisingly funny debate about the roles people choose to play, and those they feel forced into; a conversation with 140 years of momentum behind it.
Runs October 24 – November 17. Opens October 26.
FEATURING Sarah Day, Jim DeVita, Colleen Madden, Melisa Pereyra

It is hard to be with people...
But we’ve got to keep working on it. Even with those we hurt and
are hurt by. And if we can do that, we have done something,
