The Robertson living room is filled to the brim with love, bickering, heart-warming memories, and the inevitible question: "Where is the Will?" As everyone tries to deal with their grief they all know that nothing can be put to rest until someone finds the will. Play/ Family Drama/ 7 Females/ Set in modern day in a living room in the south.
