On The Greenbelt is an exploration of family, love, memory and the question of How do we process loss and grief?” Jules saw something terrible in the Idaho hospital the night her mom died, but she’ll never say what it was. Not to her ex, Olivia, and especially not to her brother, Jake, who keeps trying to convince her to go with him to the Greenbelt to spread their mom’s ashes with their father, Alan. But try as she might, Jules can’t shake the memories of the past that haunt her like a gin soaked hangover, and as the day unravels the past events surrounding her mother’s death come to light. A semi-finalist for the 2021 Blue Ink Playwright Awards.
