The Lark Timeline



by Nick Gandiello

Benedetta is trying to ride a wave of political engagement into the seat of her northern New Jersey district’s County Executive. At the same time, she's preparing for her daughter’s wedding and balancing out her volatile son. When a long past trauma is used to smear her campaign, she and her family must decide how they will present themselves on the public stage.  A comedic drama about American politics and American families.
