STORY LINE: Vanessa is constantly tormented by the voices in her head that tell her she’s too fat, too old, not black enough, too white, not Jewish enough and frightened of everything. These “voices” are all onstage, belittling Vanessa (though she cannot “see” them the audience can). As they convince her to take her own life, she struggles to find her own voice through the chatter of negativity that surrounds her.
