A chance meeting between an Italian-American farm wife and a world-weary photographer leads to a soul-stirring affair in this lush, lyrical musical by the Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning team of Marsha Norman ( ‘night, Mother) and Jason Robert Brown (The Last Five YearsParadeSongs for a New World).

"This is the best performance I've seen Jennifer Ellis give!" — The Boston Globe

"The importance of the music to the storytelling is clear from the get-go in M. Bevin O’Gara’s minimalist, stylized staging … in which mundane items like the telephone or a bottle of brandy seem to float and nothing seems quite real except the romance." — WBUR The Artery
