    “A world premiere by award-winning playwright Madelyn Sergel. A mother and her grown daughters re-unite to pack up the family home. With just a single sentence, a hidden truth from the past is revealed and challenges the relationships between the women. Their bonds are reaffirmed and re-created as they examine the toll that family secrets can take on not just on one person but also on the generations which follow.” Nov 5 – Nov 21, 2021, Fri/Sat at 7:30 pm, Sun at 2:00 pm, Wed matinee Nov 10 at 1:30 pm.
