Anatomy of a Hug by Kat Ramsburg

Anatomy of a Hug by Kat RamsburgWorld premiere production by our Playwright of the Year! When Amelia's mother receives Compassionate Release from her prison sentence, Amelia's carefully constructed world is threatened. Twenty-six years of living vicariously through her beloved TV characters doesn't prepare her for the actual drama of her mother's return or the advances of a charming co-worker. The ticking clock of her mother's illness means Amelia must decide if her fictional life is safer than the possibility of her own story.
