This Random World by Steven Dietz

Oct 5, 2018 - Oct 21, 2018

We want to believe that serendipity brings us together, but how often do we travel parallel paths through the world without noticing? From an ailing woman who plans one final trip, to her daughter planning one great escape, and her son falling prey to a prank gone wrong, this funny, intimate, and heartbreaking play explores the lives that may be happening just out of reach of our own. Following a web of characters whose interwoven lives collide but never quite connect, This Random World shows us that, through the power of chance, we might be closer to each other than we know.
