    From rigorously meditative to annoyingly talky, the quality of talk — or in some cases the absence of it — distinguishes this set of uniquely visionary short works. At turns deeply personal to pointedly political, how the characters in these works “talk it out” invites one and all to follow along. — Abraham Ferrer

    In This Program: If I Were Any Further Away I’d Be Closer to Home, Death in a Day, Lily, Best Buds, Blooming Night, Prom, Please Hold, Selfie, The Pursuit of a Happy Human Life
