After the sudden death of her adoptive mother, a rich New York City dancer embarks on a search for her birth mother's home

She longs for a family connection, but ends up with a family crisis ...

In an impoverished farmhouse in rural upstate New York, her fifteen-year-old half-sister is pregnant-and wants to give up her baby

Her mother - a stubborn, introverted woman who carves rough rock sculptures as a way to express her frustrations - wants her to keep it

Her grandmother wants to be boss

Armed with good intentions and a desire to help her new family, the dancer arrives at their door

When she's met with a volatile mixture of envy, regret and resentment, her assumptions about identity, biological ties and what it "means" to be a mother are turned upside down

REVIEWS

" ... lovely, sensitive and engrossing ... takes theatergoers along for the roller-coaster ride that a woman might go through in meeting her biological mother for the first time" ~ NY Times
