"Intriguing and amusing… a stylish area premiere… vivid, poetic and pungent dialogue… the eight-member cast smoothly embraced the play’s whimsical rhythms… ultimately proves most fascinating for the theatricality of its inner monologues, which reveal so much about the anxieties, and musings of different characters."
- Michael Grossberg, Columbus Dispatch
ABOUT THIS PLAY
"You sitting alone at the bar:
A feminist act. Do it.”
Food. Drinks. Books. A bartender who won't let you order anything lame.
A handsome stranger walks in and asks for something special, setting off an upside-down romantic comedy inside and out of our heroine's head. Desires of all kinds are awakened with a ferocious thump.
A nice smile is a nice smile, but can we enjoy the sausage once we know how it’s made?
“A stealthily ferocious, comfortingly hopeful, very funny new play. An exhortation to get out of your head and live, in thoughtful pursuit of joy.”
