A daughter’s road trip with her father becomes a theatrical journey across more than just state lines. This funny, wise, and heartbreaking debut from an exciting new writer will be brought to vibrant life by director Daniel Aukin, whom MTC audiences will remember from Fool for Love and Fulfillment Center.

The Best We Could (a family tragedy) is supported by an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award. Emily Feldman was the 2019-2020 Tow Playwright-in-Residence.
