About the Show

Jason Brooks, a man who has committed himself to superficial living, to ignoring the past and avoiding the present, discovers that not knowing can be hazardous to his mental health.  When his combative, narcissistic mother Mavis escapes being ferried across the River Styx, he is threatened with the prospect of being haunted by her forever unless he can pen an obituary that is one-hundred percent true.  Not only must he unearth some true memories, he must do so while contending with Time's suddenly erratic deviations.   

Using a non-linear structure, playwright, Peter Anderegg explores how we respond when we're suddenly forced to wake up, take stock, and chart a new course.  In this new work, we get the pleasure of watching characters try to figure out what's real and what's made up as they grope their way toward an unlikely reconciliation.
