Mrs. K is an elderly widow who lives by herself in a small suburban town. She whiles away her time reminiscing about her late husband and the children she taught long ago as a piano instructor. One day, she finds herself compelled to call her old students, but is it out of loneliness or some other, darker need? As Mrs. K discovers, it may not be what we cannot know that troubles us the most; it may be what we cannot bear to know.
"Deftly wrought…a cozy, effective little chiller…you will probably feel speechless with sadness." —NY Times. "Well-written…triumphs in dramatizing the unknown." —The New Yorker. "A shattering new play." —Associated Press. "Cunningly-crafted with aching weight and mystery…a piece that fully captures the imagination." —NY Sun. "Cho is fast establishing herself as a chronicler of small tragedies…she is not a sleight-of-hand artist but a craftsman." —BackStage.
