SYNOPSIS: Our story takes place in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, where three sisters were raised by their single father after their mother ran off with another man when they were children. Charlie (the middle sister) fled, at age 19, to Los Angeles forcing Melissa, the eldest, to move back home to take care of her ailing father and 11 year old sister, Carolyn. The play begins 8 years later, with Charlie returning to South Carolina for her father’s funeral. She attempts to make amends with her estranged sisters… without revealing why she had to leave in the first place.
