From the author of Margaret's Museum comes this all-too-human comedy of unrequited love. From her wedding day until the day her son leaves for university, Liza lives with sensible Lauchie while pining for his reckless identical twin brother, Rory. In a series of scenes from Liza's life, Currie evokes an entire east-coast town and keeps us laughing while subtly illuminating the poignancy in the situation. The play's two actors switch characters at a dizzying pace?playing parents, siblings, children, priests, nuns?to weave the tale of a warm and tightly-knit family coming to terms with the meaning of love and loyalty.
