Hanging on by a thread after her ex-husband gets engaged to a much younger woman, Jodi retreats to her dad's swanky Manhattan townhouse. But rather than the comforts of home, she instead finds her aging father's new live-in boyfriend, Trey -- who is 20.

Joshua Harmon brings neurotic family drama to the forefront as father and daughter contend with the age-old questions of how to age gracefully in a world obsessed with youth and where love fits into it all.


"Harmon charms his audience with witty dialogue and recognizable characters before slapping us back to reality with penetrating observations about the hypocritical myths that undergird American society."


"Harmon is an extremely gifted writer of comic dialogue."


"Very funny and poignant and well-crafted."
