"People don't get married without telling their mother."
"People don't have mothers like you."

The distance between recovering alcoholic Leda and her Born-Again daughter is filled with silence, anger and humor.  Upon the advice of a therapist dealing with her own host of troubles, Leda tries to bridge that distance and prepare her daughter for the calamity just ahead.

Communion explores the dark places of relations and what is needed to repair a familial bond under the pressures of religion, recovery and a ticking clock. It asks whether or not some bonds are too damaged to mend.

As part of Urban Stages’ mission to use theater as a means for conversation and education, a series of after-the-show talkbacks with psychiatrists, therapists and grief counselors have been scheduled. CLICK HERE for a full list of guests.
