Richard, late 50’s, a well-established writer living alone in a rent-stabilized apartment in Park Slope, NYC, meets Seattle, early 30’s, and instantly falls in love, despite Seattle’s insistence on not defining what they are. When Lily, a 9-year old girl, arrives at his doorstep, Richard is forced to confront his past and re-examine his present and hope for the future.

This production contains violence and adult language and themes including sexual violence, mental illness, and suicide.
