Up, Down, Strange, Charmed, Beauty, and Truth
(Included in the volume UP, DOWN, STRANGE, CHARMED, BEAUTY, AND TRUTH; LILA ON THE WALL; AND MAFIA ON PROZAC)
THE STORY: A pair of teenage sisters struggle to escape their drug-addled mother with help from their favorite down-on-his-luck uncle. Thanks to a series of wholly organic yet startlingly unexpected plot twists, neither the characters nor their situations are how they seemed when the play began. (1 man, 2 women.)
“Edward Allan Baker tells a wrenching story of loves found and lost, of broken hearts and betrayal. [UP, DOWN, STRANGE, CHARMED, BEAUTY, AND TRUTH] inflames the scarred tissue of family relationships already torn and raw from the chaos of life.” —The New York Times.
