After a drunk driver kills both his teenage children, Colin Campbell channels his shock, rage and anguish into a tragic-comedic exploration of our culture’s inability to talk about grief. Campbell gets into the weeds of grief – what happens to the marriage after the kids are killed? How do you ever get back to having sex? What do you say to people in grief? Campbell discovers that no one knows how to talk to him. His grief is too scary. He turns to grief groups and grief books but finds no relief from his fury. And then, against his will, Campbell finds his heart stretched and his compassion grow for others in grief, as he starts to pull apart his own misconceptions about loss and heartbreak, discovering other, deeper layers of loss that he had never even thought about. What begins as the feel-bad show of the year turns surprisingly redemptive. And it’s funny, too, believe it or not.
