Off-Broadway
Play
Presented by Athena Theatre Company

SYNOPSIS: Phoebe is a young poet, forever living in the shadow of her estranged mother’s literary acclaim. When her mother unexpectedly dies, however, Phoebe is left with two complicated legacies: donating her mother’s organs and reading her mother’s unpublished confessional journal. Meanwhile, Tess and her partner Lydia receive a late night phone call, informing them that a donor heart is available for Tess. But when the transplant establishes a sympathetic link between donor and recipient these two families form an unlikely connection, struggling to understand the politics and poetics of organ donation and daring to hope that pieces of us can live on after great tragedy.

Directed by Cate Caplin
