This is a MUST SEE. It isn't joyful. It doesn't have a happy ending. It is a well written, beautifully acted, well directed timely subject with tender and funny moments. And…it is a play worth seeing. Enjoy!!!!!!!

At times it is very touching, other times it is emotional, and there are moments when it can be inexplicable while embracing a situation that is timely today.
