WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

What do you do if you're destined for madness? Do you escape, avoid, or embrace mental illness if it's encrypted in your genes? And what of your children? Employing five languages, ten characters, countless soliloquies, dance and song, Puerto Rican actress/writer Ravi Batista leads us through a life laced with Shakespearian passion, humor, and suicide, only to find salvation in the poetry of Hamlet. Exploring the dark side of this holiday season, Batista shares her own family history in this autobiographical one-woman tour-de-force devised and directed with Neo-Futurist Founder Greg Allen.
