When David and Faith arrive at their deceased father’s house to clear out his cluttered attic, they find more than they bargain for. As they begin to disentangle the jumbled and mostly forgotten threads of their childhood, they discover both truth and deception, along with countless other shocking revelations which lie buried among the crumpled boxes which hold the trappings of a man’s life.
Trappings is intriguing, powerful, sad.

Ah! It was so good! Like a novel I couldn’t put down! [It] really spoke to me…Bravo to you and your husband. I was right there in the attic the entire time.

Once I started reading this story, I could not put it down. The dynamics and juxtaposition of the siblings and their memories speaks volumes to how alienation affects children even into adulthood. This story is a perfect example of what families of high-conflict divorce with custody issues go through and how damaging it can be, but also how healing it can be when the truth finally comes out.

I love it! So much dysfunction, bitterness, beef and heart at the same time. OMG, I cannot believe how good this play is. I cried my eyes out. This is soooo good. [I]t’s really open-ended. So meaty, without excessive sentimentality.
