It's "Body Awareness" week on campus and Phyllis, the organizer, and her partner, Joyce, are hosting a guest artist in their home. Their family is quickly divided as Frank, a photographer famous for his female nude portraits, settles in. Phyllis is disgusted by his work, but Joyce is rather intrigued by the whole thing. Meanwhile, Joyce’s grown son Jared continues to deny his symptoms related to Asperger’s Syndrome. Tensions rise as Jared turns to Frank for advice in this smart and generous comedy by Obie and Pulitzer Prize winner Annie Baker.

"An engaging new comedy by a young playwright with a probing, understated voice” - The New York Times
