FAMILY PLAY (1979 to present)

Children of the 80's dig through three decades of their lives: humorous, mundane and revelatory moments between parents, siblings and friends, all fighting to love each other amidst radically shifting notions of family, gender, and sexuality. 

Part dissection of the past, part love letter to the present -- a fast-paced, unsentimental memory play.
