Sharon has lived in Iowa forever. She’s sensible, an empty-nester, curious and very, very talkative. For the first time in her life, at age 54, she takes in a roommate to make ends meet. That’s where Robyn comes in, a new arrival from the Bronx who is hiding a lifetime of secrets. But Sharon has a way of getting to the truth — the fascinating, shocking truth. This intriguing new comedy proves it’s never too late to shake things up—for better or worse.
