A young professor is presented with the secret sonnets of his estranged dead mother. They illuminate the hidden life of this woman he thought he knew, the father who died before he was born, the uncle who accidentally killed his father, and the aunt who helped raise him. The play traverses five decades, as it explores fratricide, homophobia, thwarted love and the restorative nature of art in the lives of a first generation Italian-American family. L.A. Times Critic's Choice, L.A. Weekly GO!, Back Stage Critic's Pick, Ovation Recommended.
