Synopsis

Three years after Josie’s mother died, no one expects her to telephone from a bus station in North Dakota. This smart and slyly comic study of love and letting go, adapted by Laura Eason from short stories by award-winning author Elizabeth Crane, is an insightful look at the disparity between what you expect and what is delivered.

When the Messenger Is Hot is part of the 3rd Annual First Look Repertory of New Work which also includes Gary and Tranquillity Woods.
