The Spot

Book & Lyrics by Bruce Karp

Music by Boram Han

Directed by Marj O’Neill-Butler

Everyone has that spot – that special place in nature that seems reserved only for them. When Molly finds it amongst her beloved trees in Central Park, she encounters an unexpected adversary in her son who is not on board with her unconventional burial plans.
