Meet four-year-old Lucy's imaginary friend Mr. Marmalade. He's a workaholic cocaine addict who beats his personal assistant and has a penchant for porn and sex toys. Oh, and Lucy's other "friends"? They're five-year-old Larry, who holds the record for the youngest suicide attempt in the history of New Jersey, and Sookie, her neglectful mom. Does this sound like the strangest comedy ever? It might just be. Playwright Noah Haidle's supremely dark comedy is full of "I can't believe I'm laughing at this" moments and gives both a hilarious and heartbreaking glimpse into the life of a little girl who's growing up way too fast.

Maddie Sternberg is the author of the sexy cartoon strip “Oh My Goddess’, and is committed to proving that her life is great – only a year after her father’s suicide. But things start to get complicated after her Grandmother Esther pops up uninvited at her Venice Beach bungalow with a trunk full of family photos and warm potato latkes. When Maddie falls for a hot messenger guy who happens to be German, her goddess cartoon character can’t take it anymore and starts giving her relationship advice. Things couldn’t get more surreal for Maddie in this darkly comic play about love, sex, heritage and letting go.
