After All

by Jennifer Berry
A member stage reading


Two women reunite on the eve of an art opening. Are they friends or just survivors of an unspeakable loss? Does time exist in linear form or do we live falling back? Does motherhood change your future even when you planned for it? Meet Sue and Marsha in their forties, in their thirties and in their twenties as they try to piece together loss, longing, love and running away.
