Jennifer Engler as Fiona in Echo Theatre’s ‘in a word.’ (Courtesy Echo) That playwright Lauren Yee wrote in a word at the age of 22 is both remarkable and frightening.

Her insight into the grief of a 40-something (maybe late 30s) mother who lost her child in a kidnapping is impressive. Echo Theatre’s production of Yee’s show was equally so.

Jennifer Engler is Fiona, a mother, wife and school teacher, who has been in a state to say the least for two years since her seven year-old child Tristan (Thomas Magee) went missing.
