In the small town of Independence, Iowa, Evelyn Briggs might be losing her mind.  As her three daughters attempt to come together to make a family decision, each must find their own independence.

A powerful, disturbing study of a family divided against itself. Produced to critical and popular acclaim as part of the Humana Festival of New American Plays of the Actors Theatre of Louisville. “Mr. Blessing writes admirably well timed and weighted dialogue, and the play takes the cleverly invented characters through to a chilling end.” —Plays and Players (England). “Blessing has a hair-trigger sensitivity to what families are saying and doing now, this minute…” —Dallas Times Herald. “…a delicate balance of comic and tragic elements.” —Louisville News American.
