The play concerns the lives of four college friends and their search for relationships. Harmon explained the premise: "How do you make life work for yourself when you feel that you're not living the life you're supposed to be living or want to be living? And how do you deal with that when the changes that you need to make are in some ways outside of your control?"
Three of the friends, Kiki, Vanessa and Laura, all age 29, are engaged and are preparing for their respective weddings. Their college friend, Jordan Berman, is a gay man, who is seeking his own romantic relationships. Jordan Berman confides in his grandmother, Helene.
