God’s Ear
By Jenny Schwartz
February 12-21, 2016 – Showcase Series: The Theatre School at DePaul University (Fullerton Stage)

A child dies and a family shatters. Two parents grapple with the language of loss as they fight to pull their family back together. The couple navigates their new reality using dark humor, disjointed poetry, and rampant clichés—with the occasional visit from the Tooth Fairy and G.I. Joe.

A haunting, hilarious, and heartbreaking look into expressions of grief. What makes it through the filter of shared thoughts, and what do we not know how to say?
