About the Book
A one woman show about things we consume and stories we tell ourselves: a Child lives alone amid left behind stuff. Acting out an interruption to her routine, she reveals a violent past and the horrors inhabiting her space. Her yearning for contact takes us on a journey of humor, pathos, and hope.
