Rachel has it all: marriage, house, career. So why does she suddenly have this creeping feeling? Did she leave something behind? Or is it something in the walls? Her husband thinks she needs time: her psychiatrist suggests positive thinking. But then the visions start. Apparitions of doubts, past decisions, future mistakes. Is it time for Xanax? Prozac? Or perhaps she just needs to forget it all, follow her instinct, and kiss a stranger. A darkly comic play about the underside of domesticity, the complexity of the brain in chaos, and the thin line between sinking and survival. Performances are 8/24, 8/25, 8/30, 8/31,9/1, 9/6, 9/7, and 9/8 at 7:30 pm, and 8/26, 9/2, and 9/9 at 2 pm. Tickets are $15 General Admission, $12 Seniors/Military, $8 Students, and $20 at the door.
