Summary

2021’s Outdoor Theater world premiere returns to the Indoor Theater. Can it be a coming of age tale when you’ve reached a certain age? Who cares—a coming of age tale about trying to fit your fantastical dreams into an ordinary life, Joanne Powers’ one-woman show is fast, hilarious, surprising and deeply moving.

“The tongue-in-cheek humor carries the action…through decades bulging with change.” – Sue Mellen, Cape Cod Times
