World Premiere Staged Reading #1

Greg has returned to his longtime family home to prepare it for sale but finds that the lasting presence of family, and their impact in the community, are hard to ignore. An impromptu and growing art project on the side of the house only seems to complicates matters. But between advice from an irreverent college buddy, concerns from his anxious ex-wife, and the piqued interests of an interconnected neighborhood, Greg must realize the special place the house and his artwork hold for those around him, both the present and the departed.Show details
