"People don't like change. What they really love is the same in disguise." 

This funny and touching comedy-drama centers around a recently divorced dad as he struggles to repair his relationship with his estranged teenage daughter while dipping his toe into the dating scene after 22 years of marriage. Befriended by a struggling actress and an endearingly awkward middle-aged virgin, these quirky characters experience the vulnerability of wanting something new in their lives and the risks they must take to move forward. Don't miss the New England premiere of this heartbreaking and hilarious off-Broadway hit.

Recommended for Grades 10 and up.
