Four New Yorkers seek shelter, both physical and spiritual, in a variety of temporary abodes and in one another in this dark comedy. Named one of the Ten Best Plays of 2008 by New York Magazine.

“As every young, single New Yorker quickly learns, real estate is destiny in this town, a fact of urban life that Brooke Berman addresses with bracing wit and intelligence …
…Berman wastes no time exercising the satirical verbal wit that has already opened doors for her with savvy institutional theaters like Second Stage and Steppenwolf…
in re-casting the old relationship questions as real-estate issues–who will move in with whom and what will be the price of this commitment? –Berman finds a fresh and funny way of looking at the mortal terrors of being young and on your own in a bewildering existential landscape.
