Lena and Paige have been close friends for years.
Lena has just had a baby and she and Paige are struggling to maintain their connection. The play, set at Lena’s baby shower, exposes how friendships and identities are challenged when a baby comes into the mix. Lena’s friend Michelle, childless at forty, is having trouble imagining a future for herself that does not include being a mother but is coming to realize that it is no longer within reach.
