"After her best friend takes her own life in their final year of school, Beth searches for a way to forgive herself for what she might have done to prevent it," according to production notes. "She glides the bow of her violin through the music that connected them in this tender and stirring new play about friendship, forgiveness and the power of music to connect us."
