Where Do Your Loyalties Lie?⁣
In a seaside cottage on the east coast of England, a pair of retired nuclear scientists are startled by the reappearance of a former colleague. As crackers and wine are trotted out, so are remembered stories, old jealousies, and haunting secrets, all leading to the true reason for this sudden visit: a chilling and dangerous plan. The evening will be revelatory and the fallout will be cataclysmic. Brave, humane, and beautifully written, this play confronts the responsibility each generation must face for the way it leaves the world.

I grew up in a household of 15 siblings, 9 of which are adopted. From the time I was able to hold a pencil I was prompted to make art. Grandma Reiko introduced art to the family; she learned the traditional and meticulous art of ikebana, as well as, hand-sewn samurai and geisha dolls.
