Your Best One

Friday, January 17, 2020 to Sunday, February 09, 2020


Written by Meridith Friedman 

East Coast Premiere! 

Family matters. Richard and David had it all: great jobs, a great California apartment and a great relationship. It seemed a natural thing to adopt a child to share their good fortune, right? Whoops! Rewind! Richard’s fear of commitment reared its head and out he walked. Now, eight years later, a crisis brings him back to be forgiven, to be useful, to be family. He wants a do-over. But we all know that anything worth having isn’t easy to get – and is even harder to get back! As Richard and David deal with grown up things, Josh, David’s teenage adopted son, has to deal with newcomer Richard: Who is he? What does he really want? And what does it mean for Josh’s future? Meridith Friedman’s warm, funny and touching play gets to the heart of what family is all about and makes us realize that indeed, family matters.
