At some point in each of our lives, there will come a time when those we love most will leave us. It is inevitable – flesh, no matter how loved, cannot remain. But often what does remain are an abundance of cherished possessions: personal items, family artifacts, and perhaps, something more than we ever thought possible. ESTATE, a new play with original music and lyrics by Caroline Prugh, follows the journey of a brother and sister as they attempt to awaken childhood imaginations in order to help their family divide their beloved grandmother’s estate. But as is soon discovered, the passing of this family’s matriarch has left behind not just a dangerous divide, but also something quite extraordinary – whose fate only one has the power to decide.
