A full-length, one-woman play by Jim Dalglish

How much of your integrity would you be willing to sacrifice in order to live a life of luxury among New York City’s upper class? This quandary and others are explored in this award-winning play.

About the Play
The play follows the life of a former college professor named Joan - a mother of a four-year-old boy who has moved to New York to follow her mathematician husband after he takes a job at a hedge fund. The story is told from her perspective as she remembers her life in New York, her brushes with a life of wealth and privilege, and the decision she makes that will forever alter the course of her life and the lives of those around her.

The audience sees the world from her perspective and hears the voices of the people she encounters during her sojourn to New York. She shares her story in the attempt to understand the choices she makes as she looks for a way to gain some sort of redemption.
