Kicking off its 16th season, Mildred’s Umbrella Theater Company takes a trip through memory, perception, and grief with the Houston premiere of In A Word by award-winning playwright Lauren Yee.

Set two years after the disappearance of Fiona and Guy’s son Tristan, Yee’s poetic mystery play uses wordplay and the imperfection of memory to tell the story of a family wrecked by grief and attempting to re-assemble their lives. Absurdist imagery and a surreal plot combine with slippery meanings as both Fiona and Guy seek an answer to what happened that fateful day and how to move on.
