Brought back to her childhood home to care for her grandmother who is riddled with severe dementia, Sloane and her husband, Gwyn, are struggling to settle in to a new routine after having their lives uprooted by tragedy. The longer Sloane stays in her grandmother's home, the more secrets and childhood trauma begins to resurface, and the couple soon suspects something deeply sinister is afoot in this small, rural New England town. Good thing their best friend Beckham's there to help sort out the estate... right?
IVORIES made its world premiere on the stage at The Tank, a home for emerging artists, in New York City as part of the 2021 PrideFest lineup, where it had a successful June 18th-June 19th run.
