Zoe arrives home for a rare visit and finds her estranged mother Gloria, once a respected sculptor, creating new monuments from discarded objects in her backyard, distressing the new neighbor who has a different opinion of her work. Buried deep in this garden lies a wound that must be recognized if Zoe and Gloria are ever to heal.

After sold out shows in the Catskills, this play comes to NYC for a single performance to benefit the 29th Street Playwrights NEW WORKS SERIES.

Written by Melissa Bell and Directed by Laurie A Guzda, featuring Jess Beveridge, Thomas Cambridge, Susan Mendoza,* and Scott Porter.
