About the show

New Light Theater Project presents Ross Howard's dark comedy about a husband and wife, set on Earth and in the afterlife. More…

A laid-off librarian tries to determine which suicide methods will hurt the least while his wife waits impatiently. But where does she wait? A play of two worlds, this affecting two-hander explores love, loss, and the lives we impose on others.

Unengaging, Slow, Thoughtful

See it if you like thoughtful, contemplative monologues that take their time. The show barely lasts an hour, but is still leisurely paced.

Don't see it if it's frustrating to have two characters who never actually interact. Each never leaves their marked-off box on the stage. Not very dynamic.
