Lucia, a woman artist in her thirties, joins a clinical drug study, where Eugene, an idealistic young medical student, awakens her to a romance she finds both exciting and frightening. Haunted by the memory of her mother, who died of breast cancer many years earlier, Lucia struggles with the uncertainty of her prognosis and searches for somebody she can trust. When she asks Eugene to break the rules of the clinical trial, upsetting the delicate balance of the rela-tionship they have begun, their search for answers leads them to Coney Island, where in the shadows of the roller coaster they confront the fears that make trust difficult in any relationship.
"…wise compassion…On and beneath its surface, this play is all about life and death, and particularly about the decisions that shape lives and character…To Ms. Fox's credit she provides no facile answers to the questions she raises, and approaches the conflicts they present with a warmth of understanding that finds the beauty in human weakness, whether of flesh or spirit." —NY Times. "[Amy Fox is a] ferocious talent…Her characters are balanced and multi-dimensional, her dialogue sharp and two steps ahead of the audience…a wholly convincing love story." —Time Out NY.
