Emery and her sister Hazel have never ventured out of their tiny town in upstate, N.Y. for all their sixty-some years. This is a-ok with Emery, who would very happily spend the rest of her days alone, in her home-made treehouse in her beloved tree “Mabel”, blogging about her experiments on the consciousness of plants. But when she becomes an unexpected internet sensation and crowds start congregating beneath Mabel, believing she’s their savior, Hazel sees an opportunity for profit and escape for the first time in her life.This is the second in a planned trilogy beginning with 2018’s hit, Be Here Now, and was developed at The Lab over the summer of 2019. Like it’s predecessor, it received a critically acclaimed world premiere at Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park and now returns to Heckscher Stage – marking Ms. Laufer’s third full production at The Lab!
Performances: Thursday-Saturday at 7:30pm, Sundays at 3pm
