A typical day in the life of Tommy involves triple shot lattes, pining over the manager at Starbucks, and arson at Applebee’s. Such distractions are therapeutic when your older brother has been missing for months and your mom won't stop force-feeding you Pop Tarts. But when a well-meaning, if somewhat dysfunctional, “art therapist” shows up on his doorstep, Tommy must finally face his loss. EVERYTHING IS SUPER GREAT explores the different ways we cope with grief and how letting someone in helps us with letting something go.

The cast features Lisa Jill Anderson (Max Baker’s Hal & Bee at 59E59 Theaters); Marcia Debonis (Mary Page Marlowe at Second Stage, Small Mouth Sounds at Signature); Xavier Rodney (The Long Rail North at The Paradise Factory); and Will Sarratt (Jessica with Sanguine Theatre Company).

The design team includes Brian Dudkiewicz (scenic design); Elaine Wong (lighting design); Mari Taylor (costume design); Janet Bentley (sound design); and Sarah George (prop design). The production stage manager is Alannah O'Hagan.
