Dramatic Comedy

The four adult Cotter siblings have gathered at the family summer cottage on Lake Michigan two years after their father's death to scatter his ashes from atop his favorite sand dune. Meryl is on the verge of a divorce from Jim. Win is nine months pregnant. Matthew is about to lose custody of his kids. And 20-year-old Jade just wants to get married to her boyfriend Devon-and quickly. During a wet, mosquito-ridden Fourth of July weekend at a childhood getaway that has wildly divergent implications for each of them, these estranged siblings, along with their assorted spouses and companions, attempt to cobble together the elusive and contradictory memories of growing up with (and without) their difficult patriarch. As they struggle to come to terms with their past and present lives, they gain insights about themselves, their father, and each other. Flung is a laugh-filled drama about family, fireworks, and finally growing up. Area staging. Approximate running time: 1 hour, 45 minutes
