In a summer cottage on Chesapeake Bay, Gunner (afflicted with Alzheimer’s) has hatched an unorthodox plan to secure his family's future but meets with resistance from his wife and son, who have plans of their own. As winter approaches, the three must quickly find common ground and come to an understanding -- before the tide goes out. This new drama hums with dark humor and powerful emotion. Winner of the 2010 Edgerton Foundation New American Play Award "... [a] deeply moving and surprisingly funny, straight-talking, unpretentious meditation on Alzheimer’s and end-of-life suffering." philly.com 'DEEPLY MOVING AND CATHARTICALLY FUNNY - THE PLAY BEAUTIFULLY BLENDS PATHOS AND HUMOR IN A TIGHTLY CONSTRUCTED TALE THAT WILL NO DOUBT HIT CLOSE TO HOME FOR MANY!'
