New York City
Joie brings in the big bucks from the tech industry. Her husband, Freddie, wants to write an epic novel about human responsibility. On a weekend getaway to their new home in the mountains north of San Francisco, their crippled son, Erik, drowns and their world turns upside down. Freely adapted from Ibsen’s Little Eyolf, this new play grapples with the unsolvable mysterious forces that bind marriage, family, nature, and technology to our deepest hopes and wishes.
