A haunting love triangle triggers an unexpected chain of events in this poetic play.
In the early stages of a new relationship, Sarah and Sam are lovers happily discovering
each other. But when Nate, Sarah’s best friend since childhood, shows up unannounced

and heartbreaking look at love, memory, and the decisions that alter life’s course.

A Delicate Ship Cast Interview
What do you believe is the message of the play?
That we’re all alone, ultimately — and that’s unbearably sad and impossibly beautiful. That everything in life and everyone’s existence is all happening simultaneously and we should try to sensitize ourselves to this reality. That we are never prepared for life but we must keep going anyway and we’ll figure it out … that life is worth the candle — however heartbreaking, however surprising, however difficult … that life is a funny thing.
What do you hope audiences will take away with them?
It might be easy for audiences to take a side in the play. However, I would hope that they find taking a side difficult. I would hope that they can understand each character’s perspective and empathize with their deep needs. Sarah, Nate and Sam are all doing the best they can with the cards they were dealt. Compassion is the goal here.

Then Nasser, an Iraqi refugee, arrives at their door unannounced on Christmas Eve. As the family fights over whether or not to keep Nasser’s “gift”, tempers fly and secrets are revealed.
