This haunting, beautiful, funny and uplifting show explores what we gain and what we ultimately give when we care for the dying. Stay for the talkback and share your thoughts!

Every family has one: the dutiful child who stays behind shouldering familial responsibilities. Victoria wasn’t that daughter!

But when Marie, her elderly mother, moves in--wreaking comic chaos, forcing painful confrontation with a buried past, and prompting the search for the perfect pajamas--she has one last chance to build a bond of truth and love.

A haunting, beautiful, and ultimately uplifting show that asks: What do the living owe the dying? And what do the dying truly bequeath the living?

Stay for the talkback with Gayle Greene, Ph.D. and author, Missing Persons, a memoir about dealing with death in a culture that gives no help, and share your thoughts.
