Set in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Grace, a feisty elderly cancer patient, has checked herself out of the hospital and returned to her beloved cottage to die alone. The volunteer hospice worker who appears with the pain medication Grace willfully left behind is a Harvard MBA recently transplanted to this rural backwater from New York. Glorie is tense, unhappy and guilt ridden. As she attempts to care for Grace, this urbanite gains new perspectives on life's true values. A wonderful, funny and touching play with life as the teacher.
