Dinah and husband Bill, still reeling from the loss of their daughter, find comfort in spirituality. Good, Midwestern folks, they decide to meet one weekend with distant cousins, who are camped on the burn site of their home that was lost to a wildfire in Northern California. Cousins Jeannette and Neil—who are a wildly irreverent, left-leaning couple, still in love after all these years—and are also facing a devastating loss with healthy doses of red wine, alternative practices and fiercely defiant good cheer. With their widely differing political and religious backgrounds, the couples attempt to join together to confront their physical and emotional challenges as they both deal with grief and survival. This “remarkable and completely engrossing new play” (TheaterMania) harnesses spirit and fortitude while exploring the promise of love, the pride of endurance and the quality of life with large doses of humor.
