ABOUT THE PLAY
Deeply impacted by addiction and mental illness, Liz, Kim, and Kat had a difficult time growing up. When they are suddenly called to the hospital to see their estranged mother on her death bed, the sisters are forced to confront their trauma and pain as they uncover the truth about who they are, what drove them apart, and what might yet bring them together again.
