About the Show:
Set in suburban New Jersey, Kimberly Akimbo is a hilarious and poignant play about a teenager with a rare condition causing her body to age faster than it should. When she and her family flee Secaucus under dubious circumstances, Kimberly is forced to reevaluate her life while contending with a hypochondriac mother, a rarely sober father, a scam-artist aunt, her own mortality and, most terrifying of all, the possibility of first love.

Kimberly – a 16 year-old girl, played by a woman in her 60s or 70s
Buddy – Kimberly’s father, 30s-40s, blue collar, rarely sober
Pattie – Buddy’s wife, Kimberly’s mother, very pregnant hypochondriac, 30s-40s.
Jeff – a sweet, awkward, D & D playing 16 year-old boy
Debra – Pattie’s sister, 30s, a scam-artist
