This play delivers some strong, four-letter plot lines and a few, dark laughs as well. As the mother of a post-nuclear family lies dying, the tenuously stretched web of lies surrounding her family unravel to reveal a shocking reality.

Amber Hamilton stars as Susan, the youngest member of the family trying to dodge the emotional debris of the implosion and cope with years of unspoken damage. Her portrayal is sharp yet sensitive.

Jon Cohn plays Ian, a not-so-innocent guy who happens upon this disaster as the unsuspecting boyfriend of older sister Carla. His desire to help adds a little hope to the mix.

A disturbingly dysfunctional family at best, this clan has dabbled in the most taboo of activities and though they all know it, nobody has talked about it … until now.
