An original, dark, funny three act play, with a strong female lead, blending the European and American culture and angst. A modern tragedy, a social vaudeville, and indirect a political play with an absurd and neo-feminist touch, coming from the tradition of Bertolt Brecht’s Three Penny Opera, Wendy Wasserstein’s Heidi Chronicles and David Hare’s Amy’s View.
