Unit Set/Multiple Settings

By all accounts, Judge Lawrence Driver was a powerhouse on the bench but a failure at home. Now retired and widowed, Lawrence volunteers to help Tanya, a young African American single mother caught up in legal red tape—and the kind of woman he regularly put behind bars. But do-overs don't come easy for either Lawrence or Tanya, especially when race, class and the long-simmering resentments of Judge Driver's adult children boil to the surface in this searing and surprising family drama.
"[A] tale of angst, dysfunction and guilt…absorbing…crackles with biting humor." —NY Times. "Belber stacks the deck neatly…[and creates] distinctly uncomfortable yet profoundly telling barbs…fascinating and keenly poignant." —BackStage. "How refreshing—a dysfunctional family drama in which you actually give a damn who gets written out of the will." —Variety. "Belber is deft at dissecting the personal and political jumble…" —Time Out NY.
