God assigns Natalie a bunkmate in Limbo: her estranged mother. Before advancing to Heaven, Natalie must forgive her mother, a drug-addict and personal angel to Greg, Natalie's comedian husband who can't seem to tell a joke since losing his wife. God serves as therapist and grief counselor in this poetic story of a mother and daughter who have one last shot to mend their relationship and a comedian who's lost his funny bone, literally.

There will be a talkback with the playwright following the reading.
