Some description

Lewis invites his estranged sister Dana on a trip to Rome to reconnect.  But when he befriends a beautiful stranger, old wounds fester and intimate secrets are revealed.  A dark, contemplative world premiere from the Studio Theatre commissioned playwright Rachel Bonds.

Studio Lab presents scaled back productions of world premiere plays, giving playwrights in residence the ability to work in an environment of collaboration and discovery. 


This excellent play by Rachel Bonds allows a tale to breathe and find its own unique path. Director Mike Donahue seems to have an infallible touch ... with sharply intuitive direction of four profoundly well-cast actors.

The Washington Post

First-rate acting and directing! The gifted Rachel Bonds has a unique sensitivity to dialogue and modern locutions.

DC Metro Theater Arts

An exceedingly relevant piece of contemporary theatre.
