Regan, Delia and Gee are mourning the loss of their mother. Join their Celebration of Life and choose your allegiances as the sisters fight, grieve and joke their way through family tragedy.
 
This site-specific prequel to King Lear is a pick-your-own-pathway performance. You decide which characters to follow and where to go next in this black comedy about the things we love, the people we lose, and the cupcakes we eat along the way.
