What traumas of childhood are carried into adulthood? In this multi-character piece, a woman of varying ages looks at the mental and physical prison of her life. Little Girls Have Heart Attacks tells the story of a little girl, who at various ages has been neglected and mistreated. Playing over a dozen characters, the little girl tries to realize why she is the way she is, why she is stuck in a prison she can't get out of, and why her heart can't breathe.

Little Girls Have Heart Attacks invites audiences to return to their childhood. In this piece, the audience will not play the traditional role of sitting back and watching. Set in an intimate space, the piece will need the audience's participation for the little girl to tell her story. The audience is encouraged to move around the space and play with the child and her toys. Little Girls Have Heart Attacks is an audience interactive piece in which the little girl cannot tell her story without the audience's help. With every audience, the piece can change
