Today is the two-year anniversary of Fiona’s son’s disappearance, and still, nothing makes sense to her. Not her blasé husband, the incompetent detective, or the neighborhood kidnapper who keeps introducing himself in the checkout line. As Fiona delves back into her memories of that fateful day, to uncover that crucial missing piece, grief and comedy collide, and ordinary turns of phrase take on dangerous new meanings.

“Engrossing… The pieces and performances grow together with an empathetic force and writerly dexterity that explain why [Lauren Yee] is in increasing demand all over the country.” - San Francisco Chronicle

"In a Word is - in a word - riveting. It’s also powerful, moving, funny..." - SF Examiner
