About the play:
A group of friends has the run of their local hangout – a cozy coffee shop where their antics are a welcomed custom. As the girls age through lust, temptation, love, heartbreak and healing, the audience is invited to catch up with them each time they meet in their cafe. In the end their question echoes, “How did I get here?” As they lean on each other to remember what keeps bringing them back.
