a farce in two acts

5 f / 2 m

All Rowena Tuttle wants is a place in polite society. But as a cisgender heterosexual white woman, no one finds her interesting anymore. If she wants to gain admission for her daughter into the uber-exclusive School for Young People, she's going to require a more compelling personal narrative, and a more diverse group of friends.

Aided with significant hesitation by her husband and her personal assistant, Rowena sets her sights on Atlanta's most powerful lesbian couple, determined to forge a friendship. But just before the lesbians arrive, Rowena's past catches up with her: Her long-presumed-dead mother arrives on her doorstep with a mutant farm animal and a passel of inconvenient truths.

Then they find the ransom note. Rowena's daughter has been kidnapped.

But Rowena Tuttle will not be deterred. There are still lesbians to entertain.
