Ida Armstrong is broke, lonely, and fading fast. As she cheerfully spends all of her children's money, her son is forced to assume the unwanted role of The Treasurer: an arrangement that becomes untenable the more he questions his devotion to her. This darkly funny, sharply intimate work chronicles the strained ties between a son and his aging mother, and the weight of a guilty conscience.
"Posner's writing is often effectively double-edged ... the play adroitly balances the everyday and the extreme-- while suggesting how crisis pushes reality into the realm of nightmares..." --NY Times.
"Posner's play is a ravishing slow burn, with layers that quietly unpeel as the piece goes on...quite simply, a marvel." --New York Magazine.
"Posner displays a brightly contemporary point of view with a keen comic sense." --The Huffington Post.
