About the Show
In Tamar Rogoff Performance Projects' '50s-set drama, a 10-year-old girl, inspired by the adventures of nurse and amateur sleuth Cherry Ames, turns her perceptive gaze on the rituals of family life.
What goes on behind closed doors and on the radio is fodder for her scientific reckonings. Rogoff invites audiences to share the intimacy that propels her protagonist on a rescue mission of her own. The action takes place in and around six beds, in open spaces, on a hospital floor, in a graveyard, and in the imagination of this curious child. With an ensemble of differently abled performers, Rogoff charts a journey through life’s passages, widening our circle of connection and understanding.
