THE STORY: In a Neiman Marcus changing room in Dallas, on the most important day of her life, Annabell Armstrong frantically searches for the perfect dress. A rising star in the Texas Democratic Party, Annabell is trapped in the Reagan eighties. Her political career, love affair, finances, and family relations are in crisis; and strong-minded characters from her past begin to appear from behind the changing room mirror. FIX ME, JESUS is a dark comedy—the hilarious, timely, and poignant story of a woman who finds herself at the epicenter of history and politics, struggling for personal independence and social justice against the lifelong theft of her own power.
" …a manifestation of a lifetime of accumulated anxieties and emotional traumas, as evidenced by the memories that wander, unwanted, into the store's dressing room." —NY Times. "FIX ME, JESUS is a brilliant emotional roller coaster ride…There's humor, love, laughter, and high fashion…not to be missed." — "Witty Democratic commentary is far from the entirety of this piece. Its emotional heart is equally well plumbed. Characters are incisively dramatized and adroitly illuminated…engrossing, entertaining, and clever." — "[Helen Sneed] has a true gift for comedy that doesn't sacrifice true character for laugh lines; and she fully exploits Texas for all the sass it has to offer." —
