If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet
A Midwest Premiere
By Nick Payne, directed by Jonathan Berry
Ocean temperatures rise, polar ice caps melt, draughts and floods plaque our cities and Anna tries to survive the indignities of high school with a family that's falling apart. Nick Payne's insightful comedy explores how quickly the important things can slip away, and how hard it can be to get them back.
