“Equal parts rom-com and fearless reality check, the smart play marks the first time that [Halley] Feiffer — the daughter of renowned cartoonist Jules Feiffer, and writer and performer Jenny Allen — has teamed up with City Theatre.”

“I wrote this play because I’ve experienced a lot of joy in my life, and a lot of pain. Who hasn’t experienced both those poles of emotion?…I wanted to explore, how do I move through pain with some degree of elegance and even a mighty dose of humor? And I think that’s an experiment that can benefit all of us.” – Halley Feiffer
