For this production of Jane Martin's play that I directed for The Weird Sisters Theatre Project, we invited the audience to be true voyeurs. Each audience member entered the theatre through Ata's front door, into her living room world of pizza boxes and Dr. Pepper cans.
This desperately funny story of two unlikely friends proved that sometimes everybody gets stuck. Sometimes you need a friend. And it’s a lucky thing – when you find yourself short on friends – when the universe decides to send one in through your open window. And when that happens, you might just find that you’re a different person than you thought you were. Your friend may not put a gun in your hand and lead you to a life of crime and unbridled sexuality (if only!). But when the universe grants you an unlikely friend, keep them close!
