Comedy / Mark Dunn / 2 m., 4 f. / This gentle southern comedy by the author of Belles and Minus Some Buttons is about two sisters and a brother who find themselves at a crossroads in their lives. As children they ran away from an unhappy foster home in Ohio and headed for Disney World. They made it as far as a small resort town on the Alabama gulf coast where they moved in with a couple with Down's Syndrome who became their surrogate parents. It's now one year after the couple's death and tough decisions must be made about the beach house which has been Parry and Joshalynn and Nicky's home for the last twenty years, and about what these three will be doing with the rest of their lives. It's a play about the sometimes reluctant passage from childhood to adulthood and about how difficult it is to trade the safety and security of youth for the problems and responsibilities of the world of the adult.
