The Way We Say Goodbye, a collage of 15 monologues with varying degrees of separation, introduces us to fourteen women and one man who celebrate, mourn, and sometimes cluelessly navigate the farewells that clear paths to the subsequent chapters of their lives.

Synopsis: In the 1930's, the new medium of radio had as big an impact on society as the internet does today. This is the true story of a still unsolved double homicide that became the first example of what is now a very popular form of entertainment, true crime podcasts. In 1931, Winnie Ruth Judd was accused and then convicted of murdering two women and dismembering one of them, loading them into steamer trunks and shipping them to Los Angeles by train. Her trial became a wildly popular broadcast that shaped the future of electronic communication.  But did she really do it? Did she act alone? What really happened? The story's relevance to today is the high value and elusive nature of the truth and our relationship to it.

For your perusal.
