Despite its sometimes somber tone, this play, which she calls a comedy, is uplifting and hopeful, Metzler says. And it should appeal, she says, to -general audiences. ''Most of us have people we're estranged from in our life, and we might not know how to close up that space.'' Cast members include Brittny Bush, Rutherford Cravens, Joanna Hubbard, Carolyn Johnson and David Wald.
