This New York Times Critics’ Pick is a pulsating new multimedia documentary theater work from En Garde Arts that speaks to our collective search for connection and hope as families navigate the complexities of their children coming of age in 21st–century America. The production is derived from the real-life stories of six families–narratives exploring issues of mental health, addiction, and gender and sexual identity. Video and projection design combines sweeping landscapes with documentary footage of parents, veering from familiar domestic confines to the harshness of the world outdoors. Featuring an evocative, original folk rock score and highly visceral movement choreography, this compelling drama begs the crucial question: how do we persevere when we feel most alone in the world?
