How do you go on when your dreams are crumbling and your life is not what you pictured it would be? What do you do when one of your kids is a drug addict, the other is gay, and you don't know anything about your youngest child?
Being Alive is a world premiere dark comedy about hope, love, family and acceptance. Though a family may be little and broken, family is always family--no matter what. It is only when we learn to accept what we have and live every day to the fullest that we are truly Being Alive.
Being Alive opens The Fern's first annual New Play Development Series which includes a full production of a New Play (Being Alive) and 4 Staged Reading of new plays. More Information about the series can be found at: http://theferntheatre.org/newplays/

Bryn Striepe: Jenn
