Rae sees herself as independent, romantic, and unlike everyone else. So when the world thrusts a strange new identity on her, just because she’s had a baby, she fights it with every fiber of her being. Until adventure abruptly reappears into her life, leaving her to create a connection with her child, on her own terms.
Susan Bernfield's play BARKING GIRL was developed at the 2003 O'Neill National Playwrights Conference. Chrysalis Theatre Company’s production will be the play’s World Premiere.
