A high school pot dealer abandons his prom night to crash the hotel-room reunion between three flight attendants (all old enough to be his mother). Booze is poured, herb is smoked, the room blurs and futures, careers, and kindness snap sharply into focus. We suggest that you keep your seat belt fastened throughout the performance, as you are certain to experience turbulence. Local Playwright Marisa Wegrzyn’s profoundly compassionate and fiercely witty play makes its Chicago Premiere.
