New England Premiere!

Hilarious and heart-warming, this unconventional new comedy tackles love, loss, and second chances.

Angus and Abigail fall into each other's lives after meeting at a funeral in Florida. Not the first place you'd expect to find romance after clocking plenty of miles on the road of life, but playwright Carey Crim deftly demonstrates in this New England premier that startling surprises come in unpredictable packages. Just when they think they've got it all figured out, well-traveled people can be rookies when it comes to learning the good stuff.

Morning After Grace is rich with dialog that is both clever and honest. It makes us laugh from the diaphragm…It is a delightful farce without being shallow; it is thought-provoking without being pretentious. —ENCORE
