Synopsis: In this "un-romantic" comedy with music, recently widowed Jane struggles with her poetry, single motherhood and her well meaning but unhelpful friends who face their own demons. Although ever conscious of the specter of middle age, they all navigate the treacherous contours of being a grownup with wit, grace and humor but not without unintended consequences that will keep you laughing, guessing and knowingly nodding throughout the play. “The play’s delicate pace, richly patterned wordplay and undercurrent of rue combine to cast a moving spell that lingers in the memory, like a sad-sweet pop song whose chorus you can’t shake,” says The New York Times as Dan Fogelberg’s Same Auld Lang Syne swells in the background.
