Tucson, AZ – February 11, 2015

TUCSON, AZ – In this comedy, four young, ambitious neighbors struggle to transition from the carefree ‘that’ of growing up to the tumultuous ‘this’ of adulthood. As they push the limits of their friendships, they show us that language can be a catalyst for intimacy as well as a weapon of defense. Capturing the experience of life happening while we make other plans, This gives us a humorous, wise & honest story about fallible – but bright – people in midlife who know that desire & misfortune don’t automatically vanish after marriage.
