Blair, a recent college grad, navigates gender identity, grieving the loss of a relationship, and recovery from trauma - and how they all coincide - with help (and hindrance) from roommate Adam, ex-partner Jasper, and new sort-of-friend Maggie.

This play includes discussions of sexual assault, drug use, and adult language.
