A bedraggled young woman in full bridal gear breaks into a remote Alaska cabin, belts down some whiskey and faints. Promptly. And for days. The young man she’s disturbed is amazed and bewildered, and so begins their uneasy dance of affection, annoyance and forced cohabitation. A story of love, loss and the unlikely places we find sanctuary.

Watch an interview with Cindy conducted by our pals at American Theatre Wing – here:
“Even if Ms. Johnson had few other talents -- and she seems to have many -- one couldn't dispute her ability to grab an audience's immediate attention.” – Frank Rich, The New York Times (1989)

“What a beautiful story it is. You may not quite believe that someone would do what Rosannah does, but who among us at one time or another hasn't wanted to run? And while running might seem like the wrong thing to do in almost any circumstance, for some it may be the rightest thing they've ever done. Yes, your heart can be broken. But if you're lucky, it can be healed as well, perhaps completely by chance, without ever really looking for it at all. -- The Austin Chronicle, Texas (August 2007)

“Expertly written. … A marvel of great character writing, both intense and often humorous.” –
