October 18, 19, 20, 2013 (Fri.-Sun..)This lyrical drama tells a story of loss, heartbreak, and forgiveness—revealed through daily moments and emotional hurdles—as a family moves on after the accidental death of their four-year-old son. Laced with wit, insightfulness and compassion, the play won the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. In his New York Times review, Ben Brantley wrote, “This anatomy of grief taps a reservoir of feelings common to anyone who has experienced the vacuum left by a death in the family.”
