SNUG HARBOR by Steve Burch is a play about one’s need to find a safe or protected anchor, a harbor.  Snug Harbor, a retirement home for sailors in Boston is a looming backdrop for a group of people who are seeking a safe harbor for their hearts and minds.  Burch takes us on a journey of the rough seas of life, with fits and starts, through the gales of relationships and internal waves of guilt and regret, to the safe harbor of holy relationships.
