“Departures” at NoHo Arts Center
In DEPARTURES, fifteen travelers find their life stories entwined in this humorous and touching story.  From a runaway bride in her wedding dress with an extraordinary case of cold feet to a grandfather determined to bring his young grandson home from Iraq; these characters share their dreams, their fears and their secrets with each other as each one takes the defining journey of their life.  At turns comical and moving, hopeful and nostalgic, DEPARTURES blends the voices of an eclectic group of eight writers into a tapestry of lives at their most daring moment – the moment of leaping into thin air, and letting Faith give you wings.
