It’s been two years since Fiona and Guy’s son Tristan disappeared, and while Fiona endlessly travels through her memories of him, Guy’s frustration and inability to understand her grows. Along the way, the two lose their ability to speak plainly. Familiar phrases start to jumble and change meaning—somber words become punchlines and reassuring words lose their solace. By turns playful, tragic and vulnerable, Lauren Yee’s in a word explores how the language we use changes our reality and shows us that dealing with loss is a lifelong process.
