About the show

Partial Comfort's world premiere drama offers a love story for the opioid era. More…

From the show:

Clay and Jess have big dreams: college, refuge from the cold Maine winters, and a permanent escape from the paycheck-to-paycheck, rent-a-center furniture lifestyle of their parents. When Jess finds herself temporarily stuck behind and at odds with her stepfather, she moves in with Clay's mom and begrudgingly takes a job at the local chicken farm. Meanwhile Clay heads off to college, counting down the days to his return, desperate to avoid the destiny of his geography. "Nothing Gold Can Stay" is love story for the era.

Featuring Mary Bacon, Adrienne Bengtsson, Peter Mark Kendall, Talene Monahon and Micheal Richardson.
