What do you author and what authors you? One young woman’s life is explored via the metatheatrical act of play creation. By combining myth, fairy tale, personal history, dress making and play making, layers of conscious reality are laid bare and meaning in one woman’s life is prodded, crucified, drawn and quartered, and reconstructed again and again and again.

Featuring: James E. Jarrell, Debbie Keppler, John Lynch, Lynna Metrisin, Michael G. Regnier, Sharmon Sollitto and Laura Starnik
