A first-time professor, Rachel struggles to deal with her students while hurrying to finish her novel before the deadline passes. In addition, her brother has come to stay because he has just been fired from his job. But Rachel has a secret: She has an angel that talks to her. Spending her life withdrawn from the people around her, she shares all her love, fears and hopes with something that isn't human. When Julia, one of Rachel's students, reveals that she has similar powers, Rachel has to decide to share all of who she is or to close herself off forever.
"Quirky and original, Lucy Thurber's STAY confirms the talent that the playwright demonstrated a few years back in the equally brilliant Where We're Born. But while her previous play was grounded in a rugged naturalism, STAY sparkles with magic and surrealism." —TheaterMania.com.
