“A story is real. Hope is real. I see that now.”

A play about ovaries and climate change and pursuing your dreams.

Australian writer ‘Lally’ is on a quest to make sense of her life, seeking to rediscover the lost innocence of her childhood in America, when things were simple, carefree and defined.

Using both autobiographical fact and flights of imagination, the writer examines the turmoil of her personal situation within the context of a country gone crazy with excess and deception.

By turns self-deprecating, incurably romantic, optimistic and cynical, her journey through a maze of outrageous situations is hilarious and intoxicating.

Infused with a delicious blend of the real and the fantastical, this superb example of theatrical magic realism takes us on a wild adventure.
