Survival Skills by Meredith Taylor-Parry
"He saw a window of opportunity."
A man diagnosed with terminal cancer commits suicide, leaving his family behind to struggle with the aftermath. Our journey begins 20 years later as Annalise and her sister sit at their dying mother's bedside. The daughters are compelled to relive with the audience the horrible days following their father's death when those closest to him came together to mourn and try to understand his choice. The play moves between past and present.
