When Stanley invites his estranged 18-year-old daughter to spend her first winter break from college with him in his recently robbed row home that doubles as a gun shop, he is stunned by a stray jolt of the unfamiliar: a home suddenly alive with disquiet, and a shocking glimpse at a life with potential.

“It’s a blessing and relief to see people on stage like Stanley and Tara: beautifully drawn … treated with rough, cuffing affection by their portraitist … Masciotti has made brilliantly two rich characters … Her character work can’t be surpassed.” —Time Out New York
“Christina Masciotti treats her characters with a kindness and patience that are usually accorded to only the very young or very old … This playwright has a distinctive gift for finding an original poetry in everyday speech.” —The New York Times
