Set against the backdrop of a small Maryland beach town, "Too Late" is a story of betrayal and forgiveness, of despair and hope... of love. The Lacey family struggles through an August they will never forget as the sudden death of the youngest family member threatens to destroy four generations of their already fractured family.

Despite a patriarch suffering from dementia, an aunt finding comfort in alcohol, and an uncle and his son sorting through their troubled relationship, the family searches for the truth. When the deceased's absentee father shows up to 'set the record straight' with his son's mother, things only get more interesting.

"Too Late" is written and directed by Nigel Barto, a Caribbean American playwright, novelist, and poet. Starring: Robert Starks, Dondrie Burnham, Wanda Nobles Colon, Adrian Luke Sinclair, Dennis Johnson, Anthony Harper, James Egbuta, Ishani Das, and Stacey Clarke
