From the Publisher:

When Therese Marie arrives in the emergency room of a small hospital in the Bronx, suffering from hypothermia and in shock, no one there knows her story. To the doctors and nurses, she is just another abandoned elderly woman who can’t even tell them her name. But Therese Marie’s dementia is not all that it seems. And when her prodigal son, Danny, returns to New York, Therese Marie must fight to maintain her dignity in light of her son’s insistence on confronting the ugly secrets of their past.

In this unconventional family drama, Stephen Adly Guirgis gives us a mother and son who must face a long family legacy of abuse in order to find the true meaning of grace.
Annotation:
This intense family drama begins with a comatose elderly woman being brought into a Bronx hospital, then swirls through the past to gradually reveal the interactions and events that led her there. Therese Marie's story is told mostly by her son, Danny, who is battling his addictions. His telling mixes flashback with fantasy as well as present events, as he exposes broken promises and spoken secrets, bonds of words that gradually became unwound and loosened the links that had once held the family together. The Off-Broadway version of the play was directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman, with Ellen Burstyn in the starring role.
