About the Show

The Cherry Lane Mentor Project presents a play about our conflicting desires to escape the world and indulge in it, our excesses and our emptiness, and how they relate to our constant quest for “happiness.”

Clever, Confusing, Great acting, Quirky, Ambitious

See it if can relate to awkward, needy, insecure writers/protagonists and you like disjointed scenes that keep you off-balance.

Don't see it if prefer linear storylines with clear beginnings, middles and ends that don't leave you going, "WTF?"

Ambitious, Original, Quirky, Entertaining, Hilarious

See it if you like cute, funny, very original stories! I laughed a lot, and it takes a lot to make me laugh. I loved the silliness of it all.

Don't see it if you want to see something really serious that will stay with you long after you leave the theater.

Clever, Confusing, Great acting, Great writing, Indulgent

See it if witty writing and good staging-on-a-budget.

Don't see it if you expect the story to go anywhere.
