Description: In this haunting family drama of recrimination and reconciliation, Lisa Waechter is at the center of the story playing a beleaguered family matriarch who has subordinated her needs and desires to those of her family, particularly her cold, demanding husband. Lisa's sudden death brings her entire clan together and triggers a series of flashbacks that reveal how the seeds of today's discontent were planted years earlier. Juxtaposing past and present in a fluid, lyrical, and emotionally resonant manner, "Fireflies in the Garden" shows us that, while family is hard to live with, it is impossible to live without.
