Narrator Tavia Gilbert's rich, expressive voice conveys the wide range of characters in this sometimes funny yet often heartrending story of rising senior Adelaide Buchwald's summer of discontent. Her family has been torn apart by her younger brother Toby's drug addiction. Now Adelaide lives in Massachusetts with her father at the elite boarding school where he teaches and she is a student, while her mother and brother live in Baltimore, where Toby is in rehabilitation. Adelaide staggers through the summer, falling in and out of love and attempting to restore her relationship with Toby. Lockhart gives us a story in which time and speech are fragmented and different outcomes are possible. Gilbert's skillfully executed pacing weaves everything together in this stunning production.
