A moving and delightful exploration of love and letting go by one of today’s most celebrated playwrights. The story centers around an American mother whose young son is believed to be the reincarnation of a high Buddhist Lama. When Tibetan monks arrive unexpectedly, asking to bring her child to India for a life of spiritual training in India, she and her Tibetan husband must make a life-altering choice that will test their faith and their hearts.
“An emotional tsunami,
an extraordinary story from a
singular voice in American theater”
