by Tim Klein

Communion centers around Jane, a professional Chicago actress, and her acting friends, sister, and mother.  The five women treat themselves to monthly wine and pairings parties to discuss the trials and adventures of their journeys through divorce, love, descent into middle age, and fears of the unknown future.  Jane’s recent diagnosis of stage four cancer forces the group to confront their fears of death and their beliefs in the afterlife.  A touching story of the way women sustain each other through bold criticism, bawdy laughter, and steadfast support … and the way friends, family, and even former lovers can help us live life with love and light.
