In a summer cottage on the banks of Chesapeake Bay, Gunner has hatched as unorthadox plan to secure his family's future, but meets with resistance from his wife and son, who have plans of their own. This new drama hums with dark humour and powerful emotion. As winter approaches, the three must quickly find common ground and come to an understanding-before the tide goes out.

‘...surely the most courageous performance of Mahoney's formidable acting career’

The Chicago Tribune

‘John Mahoney and Rondi Reed, each a Tony Award winner give an informal masterclass in acting.’

Chicago Sun Times

‘Mahoney is Terrific’
