Set in the “big hair” 80’s, this show has a retro feel. Sadonna Croff deftly directs a cast of four — with extra kudos to her talented husband, Jeff Croff, who took over the role of Arnold at the last minute (since the original Arnold, Richard Kirkwood (The Whale) was recently injured in an auto accident; he was in the audience and seems to be healing well.)
Rachel Mender brings presence and energy to the agoraphobic Fern, who frenetically invites us into her surreal breakdown at the Super Kroger, explaining why she hasn’t been out of her house in six years. We next meet Fern's initially catatonic but ultimately sympathetic sister, Maple (Cassie Little) who is in distress after being abandoned by her husband who seems… “disturbed." Neighbor Carla (Miranda Hartmann) brings her own wacky perspectives and superstitions to the mix. When Fern wins a microwave that she must redeem in person, her self-imposed house-arrest is challenged.
