hope - (v) \ˈhōp\ - to want something to happen or be true

Hope is the story of three women: Rose, a prostitute in the 1950's; Alice, a spirited, yet haunted wife and mother; and Hope, an Irish-Mexican storyteller who examines the fragments of her life in order to understand how she has survived and how she will thrive in the second half of her life. It is a darkly comic play about women's voices and women's choices; addiction and abuse; healing and survival. It is about HOPE.


HOPE was performed September 22 - October 13, 2018 at The Wild Project, NYC.
