Brunstetters quirky comedy contemplates how devotion and hope can persevere in the midst of unexpected loss.

According to Backstage, "Bekah Brunstetter's powerful new play marries the humor and sadness of grief. Brunstetter's words pierce the soul, and she makes the depths of the human experience profoundly relatable."
