THE UNCERTAINTY FILES- Based on a series of intimate interviews, playwright McLean talked with several Americans, transcribing their discussions (as well as the sounds around them of traffic, doors closing or a refrigerator humming) and created a one-act play about the uncertainty of the future, the hereafter, about love and about ourselves. This is the first time the play has been done in the United States. Taken from the website 
 
The comedy one-act WHAT LOVE IS opens the evening, examining the relationship of a loving, slightly cantankerous husband and wife in their twilight years, as well as their grown daughter, who is acting as a reluctant and less than happy caretaker. Aging, illness, the beauty of the tango and the happy feeling you get from a good shortbread are all tackled in a quirky, meaningful way reminiscent of Samuel Beckett at his funniest.
