A comedy/drama about the universal human longing for family. One set.

At first glance, Melina and Bob, Jodie and Devon might not be seen as "normal." Not that many people talk to invisible friends, escape from hospitals in their pajamas, or collect epitaphs. Not too many seventeen-year-old boys wear their Mother's bustiers. However, what these characters have found are various ways to cope with the past.

“I just finished reading The Last of the Daytons. I think it is a lovely script.”
