“★★★★★ Exquisite in detail and throws a jaw-dropping curveball.” —Time Out New York

A wickedly funny play about the meaning of life. Nate Martin is hopelessly single. When his most recent breakup casts him into a funk, he turns to the only source of wisdom he trusts: the stars. Poring over astrological charts, he obsessively questions his past and his place in the cosmos. The answer he gets is shockingly obvious — and totally unpredictable.

Commissioned by Portland Center Stage at The Armory | West Coast Premiere!
