    Sisters Bonnie and Claire have spent their lives estranged. After 45 years, their parents now gone, Claire is forced to move back home with Bonnie, who bitterly resents the intrusion while denying the evidence of her own decline. The sisters' young niece, Zoe, tries to help them while urging reconciliation, but there's a lot of stubborn history blocking the road. With most of the action taking place in cars, this play is a literal journey through the practicalities and the pitfalls of aging, agency and admitting when we need someone. Learn More

    Every milestone in life has a story. But there is one milestone story we seldom tell—the story of our experience of being present for the death of a loved one. Stay With Me Awhile is a compilation of vigil stories from across cultures, religions, political views and socio-economic circumstances that were collected over a seven-year period. Each story was entirely unique, and many of the scenes described were snapshots of lifelong relationships played out as the end of life approached. Learn More
