Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama 2012.
The story revolves around Elliot, who has just returned from Iraq, and his cousin Yazmin, who is struggling with where her own life is going. These two find themselves awash on a very unique stage representing separate cities where recovering addicts are connected through an online recovery chat room run by their aunt, trying to keep each other alive, hour by hour, day by day. The play is a powerful and heartfelt meditation on lives on the brink of redemption.
