Seven Decembers is a dark comedy that follows Johnny May Leahy (played by Bridgit King) through one night, stuck in her mother’s tacky condo with her estranged and dysfunctional family. It has been seven years since her brother Michael went missing. The only hope that he may still be alive comes from mysterious phone calls on his birthday each year. And so, every December, the Leahy family gathers and waits; waits to see if this will be the year they hear Michael’s voice on the other end of the phone.
Seven Decembers tackles the complexity of grief through dark humor, raw emotion, and human honesty revealed. The play explores how lack of closure slowly erodes the individual, and the bonds of a family.
