A Midwest Premiere by Courtney Baron
Directed by Hallie Gordon, Artistic Director of Steppenwolf Young Adults Program
Featuring RTE member Mary Cross, and Andrew Goetten, Anne Joy, Katherine Keberlein, Charlie Strater and Michael Szeles
Alice and Gabe are desperate to adopt a child. Single mom Nance is desperate to connect with her obese teenage daughter Evie. And Evie is desperate for her best friend to fall for her despite the incredible odds. Alternately heartbreaking and hilarious, Courtney Baron's whip-smart comedy weaves these stories together to delve into the complexities of family, body image, and hearts and minds consumed by longing. This Midwest premiere was the hit of the 2012 Humana Festival of New Plays.
