The play is described as follows: "A reunion. An argument. A Ted Talk. Emotional mutiny. And a bond that connects four women who meet once a year for a photo shoot, chronicling their changing (and aging) selves as they navigate through love, careers, children, and major world events. But, when these private photographs have the potential to go public, their relationships are tested, forcing the women to confront who they are, what they've become, and how they'll deal with whatever lies ahead."

The production will feature scenic design and projection design by Beowulf Boritt, costumes by Jennifer von Mayrhauser, lighting by Jeff Croiter, and sound by Darron L. West.
