Despite lifelong aspirations of a career as an actor and writer, MaryLee has never been able to commit to, or finish, well…anything. Even with her daddy’s undying support. And the cacophony of voices in her head, the loudest of them being her ‘Feary Godmother,’ don’t help. Now in her fifties, and with a Sundance screenwriting competition deadline looming that could be a life-changer, she clings to Anais Nin’s words, “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” With less than three days to “blossom,” however much a post-menopausal woman can blossom, MaryLee needs to overcome her fears, stop dreaming and start doing-and it all begins with this script. But it’s called a deadline for a reason…some people are going to have to go. Directed & developed by Jessica Lynn Johnson. Audiences are invited to the Opening Night post-show reception.
