This funny, wise, and heartbreaking debut from an exciting new writer will be brought to vibrant life by director Daniel Aukin, whom MTC audiences will remember from Fool for Love and Fulfillment Center.

The Best We Could is a play about a father-daughter road trip that takes them on much more than a physical journey. As they go cross-country and travel across state lines, they discuss the changing culture and the state of the world. Their conversations reveal things about each other that neither knew before, and their relationship will never be the same.
The Best We Could is directed by Daniel Aukin, a veteran Off-Broadway director whose credits include Skintight starring Idina Menzel, Apologia starring Stockard Channing, and 4000 Miles, the Pulitzer-nominated play by Amy Herzog. He also received Lucille Lortel and Outer Critics Circle Award nominations for directing and creating The Fortress of Solitude, an Off-Broadway musical.
