a new play
by Jessika McQueen, Shannon McInally & Alyssa Abraham (the wrong House Women)
It's been 10 years since high school, so it's probably about time to get the gang back together at their old stomping grounds, right? But as the liquor flows and the weather goes from bad to worse, secrets start to unravel and everyone is forced to confront a shared trauma from their past that most would rather forget. A dark comedy about nostalgia, friendship, and grief.
