Mom’s in the hospital. She’s “done something stupid.” So, you start a list of everything that’s brilliant and worth living for. #1. Ice cream. #2. Water fights. #3. Staying up past your bedtime. You leave it on her pillow, hoping. And you add to the list throughout your life. This funny and moving play is a tribute to resilience and hope—as it enlists you, the audience, to tell this heartfelt story.
