A sung-through musical about family, the ties that bind and the ones we struggle to break. A single mom and her estranged twenty-six-year-old son have news for each other, but neither can find the words nor the courage

Liz can't tell her son, Vince, that she's remarrying and moving away; Vince is afraid of how Liz will react when he tells her about his boyfriend. During one funny, awkward, touching week, they come to realize what so many families discover - the things they feared would tear them apart end up bringing them closer together

A mother and son learn from their broken past and the promise of a different future that they can walk through a doorway without slamming it shut forever

"... catchy melodic, highly theatrical, and praiseworthy. Coffin's book effectively mixes humor and tension, and is witty and sincere" ~ Talkin' Broadway
