"Comedy of the Year" -NY Times
Moving suddenly to Bogota (pronounced buh-GO-da), New Jersey in the 80's is tough, especially with a dysfunctional family, especially as a teenage girl with an extremely rare age-advancing disease. But Kimberly has more to deal with than being 16 and looking 70 - her family is hiding a secret and is hoping that they'll be safe in Bogota....
Featuring Jody Hovland as Kimberly, with Kristy Hartsgrove Mooers, Carrie Houchins-Witt, Frankie Rose, and Tim Budd. Meet the cast & characters.
"It's rare to find a play that is both incredibly poignant on topics like loneliness and love but that can still stay completely hysterical and surprising throughout." -Sean Christopher Lewis, Director
