Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre

Amber has two jobs, three kids and an eight-year-old’s birthday party to plan. The house needs fixing up and her on-again, off-again husband, Chris just can’t help but make things worse. As Amber struggles to keep things from boiling over, she finds herself a stranger to the person she once was and the person she thought she might be.
