So you think you want to be famous? So did teen idol and “B-movie” star Sheena Keener, the darling of the press, the obsession of the paparazzi, and the Goddess of the ‘E! Channel’. But now she can’t stand to be looked at anymore and her Godzilla of an agent is on the warpath.

When Sheena ends up on the doorstep of naive newcomer Loli, a recent arrival from Flatt, Kansas, it’s a wild ride on the road to fame. Sheena is a somebody who wants to be a nobody. Loli is a nobody desperate to be a somebody. In this hilarious comedy about Hollywood, fame, and the TMZ, renowned playwright Jane Martin takes dead aim at our culture of celebrity.

“No question, it’s a funny show! – The Arizona Republic

“The comedy is off-beat and beyond way out there, with an energy level that’s full-bore, redline action. Neil Simon this is definitely not… you might as well just give in and start laughing at the beginning, because for sure you’ll be laughing by the end.” ” – The Tuscon Citizen

“The script is wicked funny… Laughing your ass off is a fine way to spend an evening.”

[FALLING] teaches you something and leaves you sated—and it rocks. Packs a huge emotional punch.” —NY Observer. “FALLING sinks deep under your skin. Sharp and observant.” —NY Daily News. “Audiences will be falling in love with this extraordinary piece of theater.” —TheaterMania.com.

FALLING boldly explores the dynamic and complicated reality of a family with an autistic young man. When a relative comes to visit, the entire family is thrown out of equilibrium, with everyone trying to balance what is best for the family and what is best for them. The play bravely speaks a truth about love and family and about hopes and dreams. It asks, “How do you love someone who is difficult to love?”
