Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 082223307X, Paperback)

"Few plays or movies capture the complex emotional and professional aftermath of a medical error. So often, the characterizations and story lines are as facile as a cartoon, with careless and negligent doctors, irrational and vengeful patients and families, and soulless, ambulance-chasing lawyers. LOVE ALONE...breaks this mold. [This] lucid, deeply nuanced and fearless work pulls no punches as it lays bare the emotions of two families." --The New York Times. "First-rate...[a] gleaming gem." --The Boston Globe. "Thought-provoking, well-written, and just darn good theater." --The Providence Journal (Providence, RI). "It is real. It is intimate...even as you are reeling from one moving scene, seconds later in the following scene, you'll be smiling. I bit back the tears with laughter." --Rhode Island Monthly.

THE STORY: When Helen's lesbian partner of twenty years dies unexpectedly in minor surgery, Helen and her daughter want answers. Confused by the hospital's silence around the death, they bring a lawsuit against the doctors. Now Dr. Becca Neal must confront her feelings about losing her patient while she juggles the demands of a lawsuit. LOVE ALONE tracks the fallout in both the patient's and the doctor's homes, as both households navigate uncharted waters of anger, humor, and longing. This powerful story of how we grieve and how we heal speaks to an essential truth: We will all be patients one day.
