THE TIN WOMAN by Sean Grennan: Receiving a heart transplant gives Joy a new lease on life. Her second chance, however, comes with questions: “why me?” and “how to make the most of this gift?” A complex web of laughter and grief entangles Joy and the family of her transplant donor as they grapple with what comes next. Based on a true story, THE TIN WOMAN is a heartfelt, humorous look at the importance of family and what it means to live fully.
This production is 1 hour and 50 minutes long, including one intermission.

Cez says: “One family’s tragic loss can lead to another’s unexpected blessing. How that inheritance is spent becomes a true test of character.”
