Somewhere in Philadelphia, Elliot has returned from Iraq and is struggling to find his place in the world. Somewhere in a chat room, recovering addicts keep each other alive, hour by hour, day by day. The boundaries of family and community are stretched across continents and cyberspace as birth families splinter and online families collide. This beautiful Pulitzer Prize winning play is a heartfelt meditation on lives on the brink of redemption.
The production was originally slated for May 2020 and, as with many other companies in the region, pushed back several times until it was officially slated as the season closer for NCP’s 2021-2022 season.
