Playwright Adam Rapp's keen eye for human relationships and deft ear for language makes for a shocking exploration of the accidental killing of a little girl by her teenage brother. Across the decade and a half that follows, the teenager becomes a man and tries to cope with the ramifications of his guilt and the estrangement of his surviving family, while making a desperate search for redemption.
