    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
