PLAY

Full-Length

BY KAYLA MARTINE

Indoor Person is a play about Addie, a quick-witted high-functioning agoraphobe, and Cleo, her relentlessly compassionate best friend who tries to keep her afloat. Addie can’t leave the apartment. Cleo can’t leave Addie. Toss in a new roommate, a new boyfriend, and a fiercely protective brother, and their already complex home could reach a fever pitch. For Addie, functioning is a fine line, so fine that maintaining the balance just might be impossible.

MUSICAL

Excerpt, Act 1

MUSIC & LYRICS BY TAYLOR PEARLSTEIN
BOOK BY SHANNON MOLLY FLYNN

When Eli makes his move from his small, conservative town to the big city to join his estranged, worldly, childhood friend, Jordan, he finds himself particularly attached to his roommate, Addy. With the three of them at the cross roads of the world, they each begin their journey of responsibility: to ones they love, to each other, and most importantly, to themselves. This new musical, from break-out writers Pearlstein & Flynn, deals with the illnesses that bind and the self-awareness it takes to persist.
