In the play, a college-age brother and sister discover a cache of audiotapes their father secretly made years before. Thinking the young couple next door had the life he always wanted, the father taped their conversations, making a record of their lives. As the brother and sister listen to the tapes, they discover a side of their father they never knew.
“A lot of the play deals with that sort of searching for something that you can’t find. There’s frustration for the siblings, who want something from their father but he’s unknowable. And nothing on these tapes is going to give them the closure that they want.”
