    ABOUT THE PLAY: 21st century newlyweds Allie and Maggie have just moved into an old house that’s been in the family for generations. Vesta, a young bride-to-be of the 19th century, lives in that house with her parents. Through the quantum vagaries of time, Allie and Vesta become visible to one another, past and future co-existing in a small parlor room. While multiple souls echo across time, resonating with alternate versions of themselves, Allie teaches Vesta of modern female emancipation, changing the lives of both women in the process.
