A Complicated Hope


A Portrait of Love, Loss, and Coming Together
WINNER OF THE 2021 PANOWSKI PLAYWRITING COMPETITION
Written by John Mabey

Join us for the world premiere of our 2021 Panowski Playwriting Award winner! Marie and her daughter, Rose Marie, are left adrift after their husband/father, Michael, passes away, leaving a shocking secret behind him. Arnie, Michael’s boyfriend, yearns to heal those who’ve been hurt and unexpectedly discovers a family of his own. Mirroring the erratic path of grief itself, this beautiful play flashes between the moments in time that change us all. A Complicated Hope explores the challenges of both finding a family of choice and letting yourself be found.
