About the Show


In the mid-1980s, two elderly sisters in rural Alabama receive a visitor from New York City who has come to deliver the ashes of their nephew, Williamson Welton Gravlee, III. Forced to confront the reality of Williamson's homosexuality and the AIDS epidemic that claimed his life, the Gravlee sisters must each find their own way to deal with the loss of their family's last male heir. Told with humor and compassion, this one-act play is a beautiful and poignant tale of life, love, and loss.
