Time and chance happens to us all. In this staged reading of the Tony Award winner’s play, four women are thrown together during Thanksgiving week. One is a recovering alcoholic and world famous painter; another is her dying partner, a gallery owner and former art critic; another is an abandoned teenager with a gift for prevarication and drawing; and the fourth is a young music professor who brings her mother’s just-discovered diary from the concentration camp, Theriesenstadt. From the fear, vitriol, humor, and ultimately, love and mercy, come the redemptive power of family.
