There's this set of things everyone expects from you…
Since
her boyfriend Gus was killed in 9/11, Billy has been pretending. It is
easier for her to stay silent and go through the motions of grief than
to tell the truth: that she was planning to leave Gus, and that his 
death left her feeling a mixture of ambivalence and anguish that she is 
still struggling to resolve. Drawing from her experience, Billy writes
The Lake Shore Limited. The opening night of the play brings together
three people whose lives intersect and interweave with Billy's: Leslie,
Gus's older sister, haunted by his death and constantly aware of what
could have been; Rafe, the actor who brings the joy and sadness of his
own marriage into his role; and Sam, a recently divorced man who is 
irresistibly drawn to Billy's distinctive, enigmatic beauty. Together
these four voices create a mesmerizing novel of entanglements,
connections and inconsolable losses.
