This is a new play with songs and a ship’s captain pulling the strings. 

Ruth in 1969 refuses to eat sandwiches with lettuce in them. Ali in the present day goes on a cruise to say goodbye to the ice. A parent 100 years in the future tells their child it gets better, even though we’re pretty sure they’re lying. 

A play about horny songbirds, parents, love, legacy, and wanting to change, but not knowing how.
