A new play by Catherine Banks
Directed by Laura Vingoe-Cram
The day before Dawna’s 25th wedding anniversary party she looks up to see a sky-writing message just for her. The clouds are obscuring a few letters but clearly the message is telling her to steal her husband’s plumbing van and deliver her newest hair design to her inspiration and idol the American hip-hop artist Missy Elliott.
Pursued by Lulu, Dawna’s obsessive anniversary planner, and assailed by a host of weird and message-carrying hitchhikers including a Mermaid, Clown Parents, Ms Excess Baggage, and a EggoManic, Dawna barely keeps ahead of the life revelation the universe is dishing out.
Just when she is catatonic from the weight of all the incoming messages her skateboarding son,Justin, literally skates through a crack in the universe to urge her to keep going.
