"All things have the right to live and to flourish. Not just us."

A new play by recent Obie award winner Adam Bock, author of Five Flights and The Typographer's Dream.  A widow invests in a restored Shaker chair and discovers the intent of the design: it makes you want to get up and do something. The widow finds herself inspired to enact both personal and political changes when her friend discovers that a factory is leaking sewage into groundwater.   Using wit and environmental activism Bock's play asks us: how far are you willing to go to fight injustice?  And can you live with the consequences?
