about the play:
Melody Neglected is in crisis. Her once thriving performance art career has long been destroyed by the tourist trade dinner theatre and she has just been sentenced to 15 days in jail for a botched act of animal rights activism. Upon release she returns to her teenage daughter and, with the support of her friends, quests for a new direction.
