The Great Divide

OCT 5-22

The Great Divide is a one-person play by writer/performer Amy Crossman, directed by Scott Ebersold.

“Everything is fine! No, seriously, it is – it’s super-duper-extra, never-been-better everything… Wait, do you think Eli’s gonna kiss her tonight at midnight? Do you think he loves her back? Do you think he… No, no, no one’s got a drinking problem, and the panic attacks are just, no, they’re… It’s fine, everything’s fine!! Right? Right!”

A comedic exploration of what it means to love, to be heartbroken, and to choose life in the face of incalculable loss.
