Quotes & Highlights
“[Gilman is] dealing with how we define one another, measure success and failure, raise celebrities up and tear them down, and create different personas to cope with all the craziness of having a public identity. The parallels the playwright draws between the artist and baseball player are always smart and amusing. You might be tempted to leave the theater chanting ‘Gil-man! Gil-man!’” —Boston Globe
Artist Dana Fielding is cracking up. Her latest exhibition is a disaster, her work isn’t selling, her boyfriend is leaving, and her paranoia is spiraling out of control. When she lands in a mental hospital, it’s a chance to rebuild her fragile sanity – until she learns that her cut-rate insurance policy will only cover a ten-day stay. How to buy more time on the inside? Simple: pretend to be someone she’s not – someone famous, someone special. Persuading the professionals that she’s crazy is the easy part. But Dana’s “alter ego” is also a troubled soul. Forced to confront the darker side of fame, rejection, and making a comeback, things take a twist that even she doesn’t anticipate.
