Directed by Rose Burnett Bonczek. (2014)
Alone center stage sits a shoebox. Like loved ones at a funeral waiting to pay their respects, the cast solemnly lines up behind the box. One by one, they step forward into the light, read a greeting card, and then drop it into the shoebox. A woman's journey from cradle to grave is documented in the cards she received. There are birthdays, an engagement, a wedding, a baby shower, a promotion, a new home, a retirement, more birthdays, get well wishes, and finally condolences.
