Synopsis

2013 Drama Desk Special Award for Significant Contribution to Theatre
2013 GLAAD Media Award, Outstanding New York Theatre

A multiple Award-Winning Off-Broadway triumph about a six-hundred-pound reclusive gay man who is dying of congestive heart failure. Teaching English composition online from his disheveled apartment, he’s desperate to reconnect with his long-estranged daughter. He reaches out to her only to find a viciously sharp-tongued and wildly unhappy teen. Big-hearted and fiercely funny, it is the story of a man’s last chance at redemption and of finding beauty in the most unexpected places.
