Bev and Libby meet on the same park bench, under the same tree, sharing sandwiches, dreams and memories for the entirety of their lives. Or maybe a century. Or maybe an eternity. Generations of strangers, families, dogs and ghosts share the same space, their lives passing and intersecting as each struggles to make sense of how to be in and of our troubled and beautiful world. The Park explores what we share in being human and how we must move forward even in uncertainty.
