Randomly Specific Theater presents this comic and moving look at siblings trying to navigate their past mistakes and build a better life. More…

Jake was looking forward to this weekend. He’s invited some new friends over to his house for relaxation and fun. But when his sister Katie shows up unannounced late Friday afternoon, he must do whatever it takes to get her to leave. Why is Jake hesitant to let his sister meet his friends; why is Katie so insistent on staying?
