Kenny Barrett did something that has everyone worried. He wishes he could just make it through the rest of his senior year unnoticed, but that's going to be hard since he has to publicly apologize to his entire school.

FROM UP HERE is about a family limping out the door in the morning and coming home no matter what. The show was nominated for the 2008 Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards.

This comedy is set at the Knoxville, Tennessee home of the bride, Tracy Marlowe-McClurethe, during her overdone wedding reception. The five bridesmaids have found refuge in the room of Meredith, the sister of the bride. The women come to realize, among other things, that they, despite their differences, have more in common with each other than any of them do with the bride.
