COMMUNITY SPACE

Roommates and the closest of friends in their salad days, actors Mary and Roz have been estranged for half a century. Each a star in her own right, both are now facing all the challenges that come with age. In fact, Mary is dying, and Roz has just died. In a deathbed fever dream, Mary is visited by Roz, who has been challenged by the spirits of Helen Hayes and Edwin Booth to help Mary find the peace that will allow them both to ascend to their rightful position in the afterlife. Styled with wit and poetic diction, this surreal piece is well stocked with the accumulated lore of lifetimes in the theatre and is imbued with the quest for redemption and meaning.
