This is a play about a girl who started at the end and is stuck in the middle. This is a play about waiting rooms, needles, and walking in slanted lines. This is a play about waking up and never sleeping. This is a play about breathing slowly to stay alive. This is not a play about the beginning or the end. This is a play about the middle
Based on the writer’s real life experiences with an illness that consumed her youth. This play will take the audience down the rabbit hole and into the world of dreams, memories, suffering, and absurdity.

"There is a need to tell that drives this story at a raging clip, across the playing and into the psyche. Whether it relates to your story or not, it finds a place within you and takes hold. The cadence is a result of its unfurling, not an attempt to “write” a certain poetic prose. It speaks from the perspective of a suffering yet strong young soul, and cannot be anything but honest." - Tara Beagan
