Originally workshopped in SLAC's 2022/23 New Play Sounding Series. Stuck in a wedding dress changing room, a middle-aged woman questions her life choices and what it really means to be a woman. This hilarious and touching one-person tour de force asks what happens if you feel like you don't fit into the socially accepted norms of femininity and femaleness.
