The only solution to grief is to grieve. It’s as simple as that. You just have to grit your teeth and go through it.
You can try to bury it; to stow it away in the darkest cavities inside you, but grief grows thick and wet like moss in the dark.
You can try to ignore it, or pretend you don’t know it, but sooner or later it shows up on your doorstep, bags packed and intending on staying a while.
You can try to drown it, but you can be assured that the motherfucker will learn to swim.
The only way to learn this, is to have something to grieve for.
Funny, tender and deeply felt, Drift is an homage to young adulthood in all its guts as well as its glory. It is the follow up to Clark's critically acclaimed Jennifer Forever, described by one critic as "such a brave and bold accomplishment"* and the play writing debut for Foster.
