"23 Year Old Myth" is a new play-with-music loosely based on the playwright's real world experiences in health and in love. In a visceral, whirlwind journey through New York City – the streets, the subway, a cancer hospital, a therapists office—one girl learns to navigate life’s seemingly endless and unexpected humiliations, heartbreaks and curveballs with compassion, humor, and the ukulele.
