Societal, economic and domestic pressures seem to control her life. She must decide if she will accept her routine existence. Will she ever find human connection? To what lengths will she go to gain her freedom? Featuring senior Anna Zabel in the lead role, produced by senior Raina Seyd with lighting design by Megan Berry, and directed by faculty member R.N. Sandberg.
