Having long since given up on love, Avery has made herself content running an antique repair shop with her adult son in Philadelphia. When a charming new man enters the shop and her life, Avery’s past, present, and future collide, forcing her to make a decision that will have lasting implications on her family. Set in 2007 during Barack Obama’s political rise, the play asks the question: What do we lose in the face of progress?
