In the misty heat of a small southern town, two sisters have come home to handle a crisis.

Twins Joey and Ray have just taken their first steps into adulthood while their newly divorced father, Tom, has been suspended from his job. But deep, honest communication doesn’t come easy. Seemingly stuck between the future and the past, this family of musicians sings what they can’t bring themselves to say.

Making its Chicago premiere, Rachel Bonds’s warm, delicate play with music is an honest look at the hard work of holding a family together and re-connecting with what we’ve left behind.
