As We Forgive Those tells the story of two estranged sisters, Alex and Sophie, who meet again in unusual circumstances. Gradually, their tentative reconciliation is threatened when Jen, Sophie’s roommate and friend, shakes Sophie with a revelation about Alex that leaves her - and the audience - reeling. Written in 2011, it’s a sharp, terse and darkly comic play that explores the pain of the past, the struggles of the present, and our hopes for a better future.
Advised for ages 14+, due to adult themes and some strong language.
