in a word - NIU School of Theatre and Dance

by Lauren Yee
Directed by Kay Martinovich and Emily Vitrano

Today is the two-year anniversary of the disappearance of Tristan, the seven-year-old adopted son of Fiona Hamlin and Guy. Today also happens to be Fiona’s birthday. Through the course of one evening, Fiona and Guy wrestle with the aftermath of Tristan’s disappearance and the circumstances surrounding what really happened that fateful day when “Picture Day” went tragically awry. In this tragi-comedy, playwright Lauren Yee weaves the intricacies of language, grief, humor, and “truth” in her absorbing examination of what it means to lose a relationship and what it takes to re-connect.
