Grotesquely comic, down-to-earth and engagingly poetic, this play celebrates our capacity to use language and ritual for emotional survival. Struggling to come to terms with his grief, a musician starts an imaginary dialogue with his dead daughter. The story playfully explores how we hold on to what we value from the past while coping with challenges in the present.
