Synopsis: YOUR BEST ONE is the story of David & Richard, a NYC couple who had it all – a great apartment, good jobs, friends and the good life. When David wants to adopt a child, things go wrong and they part ways. Now, eight years later, a crisis brings Richard back for a do-over to try to be forgiven, to be useful, to become part of the family with David and his adopted son, Josh, who is now a teenager. This is a deeply moving story about family, re-evaluating values and redefining what family really means. There is some adult language in the play.
