Don't let the title fool you! This great new comedy by one of today's hottest playwrights (author of Eurydice and Dead Man's Cell Phone) is filled with typical Sarah Ruhl poetry and poignancy. Everyone falls in love with Tilly's melancholy ... until she becomes happy. When someone turns into an almond, things really get interesting.
