About this event

A Complicated Hope image

Marie and daughter Rose Marie are left adrift after their husband/father, Michael, passes away. But it's how he leaves that alters the lives of the family forever.

Arnie, Michael's boyfriend, yearns to heal those who've been hurt and unexpectedly discovers a family of his own.

Mirroring the erratic path of grief itself, A Complicated Hope flashes between the moments in time that changed them all. Their journeys explore the challenges of both finding a family of choice and letting yourself be found.

The West Coast Premiere of A Complicated Hope. Winner of the Panowski Playwriting Award, 2021. Winner of the Getchell New Play Award 2022. Winner of the Essential Theater Playwriting Award 2022.
