Guilt, regret, transgression, and redemption are explored in a series of monologues and vignettes. A professor takes out a newspaper ad to explain "love at first sight," a man laments his use of medical supplements, a DMV photographer expresses remorse, a man frantically re-engineers an escalator, and a couple cryptically discusses the necessity of water.

Lanie has just returned from her latest tour in Afghanistan but this time things are different; home doesn’t feel right and nothing makes sense. After a blow up fight with her husband propels her to skip town, she undertakes an Odyssean journey through the American landscape battling her monsters, trying to find her way home.
Connecting. Disconnecting. Reconnecting. In a series of entanglements between unrequited lovers, disjointed families, strangers, and long-time couples, inner needs give way to outer voice; actions whisper; and no one saves the girl—it's up to her. Less a comedy of errors, than a tragedy of everything going exactly right, The Dangling Conversation by playwright Adam Webster explores seven microcosms, or takes seven looks at the same one.
