In this acclaimed off-Broadway play, a blocked young novelist travels to his cousin’s home in Poland, hoping to be left alone with this thoughts. He finds instead a 75-year-old survivor with an urgent need to connect with family she barely knows. As their stories unfold, the nature of “family” – and “connection” – becomes less and less clear.
