With her star on the rise, photographer Carrie Ann inexplicably shuts down at the pinnacle of her career. Lost, and afraid to even pick up a camera, her sudden descent is interrupted by a whirlwind romance with Jeff, a trend analyst who becomes determined to help her move on, even while facing his own dark future.

What the press had to say.....

"Just when you would expect the play to deliver an emotional sucker punch, it falls back on the ropes."
Ben Brantley
New York Times

"Dinelaris' writing has passion, and Will Frears' strong staging makes it seem all the more potent."
Joe Dziemianowicz
New York Daily News

"Sarah Paulson and Frederick Weller... throwing off hot sparks in the best new American play since “Proof.”
John Simon

"a funny, earnest tearjerker that telegraphs nearly every move yet had me shedding a tear at the end."
Adam R. Perlman
Back Stage

"like the inert generation it presumes to represent, all that sound and fury about death and dying signifies nothing about life."
Marilyn Stasio
