Join Laura on a booze-soaked journey into hilarity, death and dementia. In 2009, she leaves LA and goes to Atlanta to take care of her aging father. A rollicking road trip gets derailed by ghosts of the past, late night Food Network binges and pill fueled hallucinations as she finds her way home.
Our two one acts confront the perception of truth. In “The Whole Truth”, sequestered jurors are on opposite sides in the trial of the century, both are right. Absolutely right. And in “Cornered”, a woman is trapped by a mysterious stranger and must confront her own fears to be able to break free.
