LOVE IS A BLUE TICK HOUND

Appearing at Baltimore's Theatre Project January 12-21 and at Washington's Trinidad Theatre (Capital Fringe) February 9-17. Part of the 2018 Women's Voices Theater Festival.
There is a state of inertia—a kind of reckless apathy—that is soul-crushing, yet we stand back and allow it.
A thankless job.
A bad marriage.
A dysfunctional family.
Although we are not truly "stuck," we convince ourselves that we are. Getting out requires math (the hard kind): Why do we settle... and what is the full cost of leaving? These are the central questions in Love is a Blue Tick Hound. Four intimate duets—"Fin & Euba", "Clean", "The Gulf", and "Stuck"—that bear witness to all the many facets of love as the pairings form, flounder, and fall apart.
