by Julie Fitzpatrick
It’s the winter of 2017. Recently divorced and raising her child alone in the town in which she grew up, Julie has returned to Guilford, CT. Upon the mysterious visit of a stranger on a snowy night, Julie is prompted to return to her childhood home. After some misgivings, she does so, and it is in that home from her past that she experiences flashbacks to her beloved brother’s fall into the grasp of mental illness. Poetic, touching, and honest, 77 U-Turn is about going home again, parenting, love, loss, confusion and what happens when we turn around and look back before moving forward.
