In Lauren Yee’s whimsical comedy with a heart, a lost young woman moves in with her boyfriend expecting to find domestic bliss — but before she does, she must contend with her magical new home. We learn the tale of the house’s previous inhabitants, an old hat-maker and his long-suffering wife, in a surreal journey between past and present, examining the important stuff of life: identity, love, belonging, and the meaning of home.
