Summary

When her mom transfers Anna to the school where she teaches in order to protect her daughter, it only makes things worse. If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet is an entertaining look at a regular family stuck somewhere between knowing what the problem is... and doing something about it.

Fifteen-year-old Anna's weight makes her a target for bullies. When her mom Fiona (Enid Graham) transfers Anna (Annie Funke) to the school where she teaches in order to protect her daughter, it only makes things worse. If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet is an entertaining look at a regular family stuck somewhere between knowing what the problem is... and doing something about it. This insightful new play by Nick Payne features Tony Award–winning, Emmy-nominated actor Brían F. O'Byrne and Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal in his American stage debut.

Anna's environmentalist dad (O'Byrne), determined to finish his new book and save the planet, is no help at all. Just as Anna gets suspended for retaliating with a head-butt, her estranged uncle Terry (Gyllenhaal) arrives unannounced. A heartbroken drifter with the mouth of a sailor, Terry reaches out to Anna in a way that no one ever has. Their unexpected friendship sends her parents' rocky marriage into a tailspin as the whole family wonders, what—or who—really needs saving?

Due to strong language and sensitive material, If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet may not be suitable for younger audience members. Roaundabout recommends this show for ages 14 and up.
