When the family car spins out of control after a disastrous Christmas dinner, three siblings hurtle into the future and confront the legacies of their shared childhood. This hauntingly beautiful play reunites the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Vineyard’s HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE with director Mark Brokaw. Featuring magical puppet designs by the legendary Basil Twist.
