A frank and funny new play about friendship, feminism and what it means to be successful.
Jane and Bella are best friends. They’re starting a revolution. But they’re falling out of step. Toby dreams of babies, buggies, and home improvement. But he can’t even father his cat. And that boy keeps telling Jane to take what she wants. But what is that, exactly? Three thirty-somethings attempt to make sense of their own uncertain worlds. Even if it means losing sight of each other in the process.
