"A lovely drama by the newly (and justly) hot playwright, Anna Ziegler...[Her] dialogue bristles with smart, eloquent talk..." (Critic's Pick)

— New York Times (Charles Isherwood)

plot synopsis

It’s Christmas Eve, and Sarah and Sam are celebrating like New Yorkers: flirting over wine and debating the nature of existential suffering. Then there is knock on the door, and Sarah’s childhood friend Nate stands at the threshold. And suddenly suffering becomes a whole lot less sexy. A kaleidoscopic look at one night in New York City that changes the lives of three people forever.
