An Iraqi War vet and the woman he inadvertently kidnaps become trapped not only with each other but their own personal demons as the worst snow storms in history isolate them in a cabin in the woods.
A play about connection, dealing with inner turmoil, and the need to heal even when it doesn't seem possible.....

May 3rd - 20th
Jack is a former jeweler who made his living buying and selling diamonds via late-night TV ads. He lives in a rather luxurious, privately-owned retirement home along with his fellow residents: the visually challenged techno-wizard Rose, the artistically gifted but forgetful Flora, and the narcoleptic beauty Blanche. Unbeknownst to the four of them, however, the man to whom they’ve entrusted their life savings - a smooth-talking financial advisor named Barney Effward - has been arrested for bilking his clients out of their savings through a Ponzi scheme. Faced with financial ruin, the four suddenly find themselves confronting the author of their miserable fate when Effward is unexpectedly delivered among them – along with several million dollars in diamonds. Pandemonium ensues as the four retirees try to find a way to exact their revenge, recoup their losses, and keep the authorities from discovering their plans.
Adam, a socially awkward mathematician, especially with women, laments his inability to find the hot woman of his dreams to his best friend, Brendan, who seems to get any woman he wants. Thus begins the spiral into dating and love and relationships as Brendan encourages Adam to date a low self esteemed slightly older woman, Rhonda, in order to help Adam learn how to date. In meeting up with Rhonda, Adam finds his hot woman: Natalia, Rhonda's roommate. Thinking he's finally met the woman of his dreams, Adam forges ahead with Natalia thinking maybe he can also ease his mother's concerns about his well being as she declines into her own world of Alzheimers.
Romantic entanglements explode in this touching, all too real look at how men and women relate to not only the opposite sex as friends and lovers, but to each other as well.

A professional dancer with a career-ending injury is thrown for a loop when a geoscientist with Asperger's syndrome offers her an absurd sum of money to teach him how to dance.
Teaching was never more difficult in this romantic dramedy where one of them can't lie and one of them can't face the truth.
