    Coping can be thought of as learning to get out of your own way. We all get tossed around in life and we all form defenses which make it possible to live in our early environment.

This poignant off broadway musical written and composed by Chris Neuner follows the compelling, and heartfelt true-life stores of five “would-be” parents (more).
