Join us for an original staged reading of a new play, based on the real-life efforts of a holder exploring the reasons why and learning how to ultimately let go.

People generally fall into one of two camps, struggling with either being a “hoarder” or a “tosser.” This play is about a woman who can’t let go and her two friends who help her loosen her grip in the face of change.
