After ten years on tranquillizers, Dora emerges with an adamant sexual hunger that pits her violently against a secret and deviant adult world…not your normal coming of age story; not your everyday sexual awakening.

“An impressively thought-through performance that retains the power to surprise…”

- New York Times

“Under Kristjan Thor’s keen direction…Grace Gummer shows intelligent instincts and a riveting presence.”

- BackStage

“It’s a play that’s simultaneously unafraid of addressing serious topics and eliciting a few laughs from its audience along the way…reason enough to recommend this smart, stylish production.”

- Music OMH

“Kristjan Thor’s direction is invaluable.”

- New Theater Corps
