Lesser America presents this absurdist new play about the power of loss and how to get over, around, and through what haunts you. More…
Today is the two-year anniversary of the disappearance of Fiona’s son, and still, nothing makes sense to her. Not her blasé husband, the incompetent detective, or the neighborhood kidnapper who keeps introducing himself in the checkout line. As Fiona delves back into her memories of that fateful day, hoping to uncover that crucial missing piece, grief and comedy collide, and ordinary turns of phrase take on dangerous new meanings.
