A POWERFUL NEW PLAY

A young boy tries to ease his mother’s depression with a list of everything worth living for: “Ice Cream,” “Star Trek,” “Surprises,” “Rollercoasters.” As the list grows, he learns the deep significance it has on his own life over three decades. It is a testament to the power of storytelling and a reminder that hope is never truly lost.
