JEFF RECOMMENDED

When high school senior Natalie gets an afterschool job taking care of Robbie, a 37-year old with Asperger´┐Żs, roles get confused: from parent-child to counselor-student to supervisor-worker. Ensemble member Stephen Cone directs the world premiere of Philip Dawkins' harshly funny look at the fine line between love and abuse.
