Housebound because of illness, Caroline hasn't been to school in months. Confined to her room, she has only Instagram and Facebook for company. That is until classmate Anthony bursts in – uninvited and armed with waffle fries, a scruffy copy of Walt Whitman's poetry, and a school project due the next day... Caroline is unimpressed all around. But an unlikely friendship develops and a seemingly mundane piece of homework starts to reveal the pair's hopes and dreams - as well as a deep and mysterious bond that connects them even further.
After Shakespeare, Gunderson has been the most produced playwright in America for the last several years. Author of over 20 plays, Lauren has received the coveted Lanford Wilson Award at the Dramatists Guild Awards and two Steinberg/ATCA New Play Awards.
