Created in response to "The Glass Menagerie," this play explores an other-worldly purgatory and forces each character to consider the question, "what happens when we decide to let go of the memories that trap us?" More…
Meet Truly, a charismatic shopkeeper with a mysterious past and an appetite for variety. Truly is in a precarious situation at work; she will be given a large sum of money to run a shop, provided that she does not leave the premises for a full calendar year and asks no questions about the jars she buys and sells. Edgar, a lost delivery man, stumbles his way into Truly's shop by accident, and the two form an unlikely friendship.
