Lois McIntyre and her husband Stephen arrive at the Palm Springs Hospital where her brother, Billy, is dying. She is a conservative whose lean on life borders on bigotry. Refusing to go to her brother's bedside, Lois bemoans her life with and without him. Affronted by Billy's lifestyle as gay man, she renounces him, his partner, and people like them as deviants who don't deserve salvation on earth or beyond. When her prejudices collide with her past, Lois is confronted by what they've cost her.
FRINGE VIEWERS SAID:
"The play held my attention, brought tears to my eyes, and brought back many memories - both heartwarming and gut wrenching."
"It was one of the best Fringe shows I've seen ó well written, well acted, and well produced. What I liked the most is that it actually moved the audience, which is the sign of a good production, and rare."
"Extraordinary, totally unexpected for a Fringe Production."
"From the moment the first spotlight comes on until the last fade, the audience is captivated by a story that is bittersweet and unforgiving. I laughed, I cried, I trembled. It's one of those rare occasions in the theatre where the acting and writing gel to evoke emotion from the audience."
"This is theatre at its best. Wonderful afternoon of entertainment. Wonderful ensemble performance. Interesting, compelling story."
