    Emily writes plays about real people encountering the most complicated moments in their lives, and LITTLE HOUSE is no exception. This play will resonate with anyone who's ever done everything "right" and ended up someplace that feels dead wrong. And, as usual, it's brought to life with crackling dialogue and a whip smart female protagonist.
