Lauren Epsenhart's play is described as such: "After graduating from college, Daisy Miller moves back home with her parents, Larry and Shannon. Shortly after returning, Daisy is diagnosed with cancer. Once surgery and treatments begin, she and her family face the challenges that comes with cancer and treatment. Daisy explores her identity, questioning her faith in a higher power and what her place in the world will be.

"Struggling to overcome their own difficult pasts, Larry and Shannon question why this is happening to Daisy. Once a strong believer, Larry begins to turn away from his faith while Shannon rediscovers hers.

"Mother, father and daughter are tested in every way possible. For Daisy, this means learning to accept and believe in what she cannot see or control. For Larry and Shannon, this means coming to terms with the fact that Daisy may die. Along the way, all three learn what it means to love unconditionally, cherish life and push beyond pain."
