After a friendly neighbor dies suddenly, the agoraphobic Audrey decides to venture out of her apartment for the first time in months - but only gets as far as the bus before a panic attack makes her turn back. Before she returns, her nervousness makes quite an impression on the brazen Willow, an adrenaline-seeking recovering drug addict whose sobriety has left her eager to feel anything. After running away from her recovery program, Willow comes crashing in on Audrey’s safe space, hoping to find a place to stay.
The cast will feature Jenna D’Angelo (How Alfo Learned to Love at 59E59), Brandon Ferraro (Proof at Access Theater), and Faith Sandberg* (A Wonderful Noise with New Dramatists). *Appearing courtesy of the Actors’ Equity Association.
