“A funny, moving, altogether wonderful drama. . . A heartening reminder that a keen focus on life’s small moments can pay off in a big way onstage.”
- The New York Times

In this Obie Award-winning and beautifully crafted piece, Amy Herzog gives us Vera and Leo, a grandmother and grandson, locked in a moving and most amusing battle of wits. Life has dealt them a series of shocks, and yet, they and two intrepid young women continue to seek meaning through human contact in a touching and humorous portrait of the disenfranchised.

The acclaimed comic drama about growing up, growing old—and discovering the moments in between. Pulitzer Prize finalist and Winner of the 2012 Obie Award for Best New Play.

Generously sponsored by Jerry and Honie Berko.
