Premiere at BoxFest Detroit
Featuring Tricia Turek & Nicholas LaGrassa
"There is a definite pattern to the emotions in this play, and Emily Caffery hits each rise and fall just right. There's special appeal in experiencing the actors' subtle gestures, some angry, some consoling, that give depth to the spoken word."
— John Quinn, Between the Lines

Midwest premiere at The Carriage House Theatre of Ann Arbor, MI
“I think that we are more what we have lost than what we have — what we throw away, leave behind, lose — tells us more about who we are than what we hold on to.”
Anna is a Swiss artist who makes beautiful collages out of trash she finds on beaches. At a gallery opening of her work, she meets Pierre-Luigi, a Bolivian restaurateur who discovers his dentures in one of her pieces, and Aldo, an American trash collector looking to make a fresh start in Switzerland. Anna begins seeing Aldo and starts a correspondence with Pierre-Luigi. But with each person running from their past, can any of them hope to find their place in the world? A poignant comedy about love, loss, teeth, and new beginnings.
Featuring Emily Wilson-Tobin, Siamak Nejad Davarani, Colleen Cartwright, Adam Weakley, Tricia Turek, and Dave Angus
