Annie and the Fat Man

    One of my all-time favorite plays -- it's perfectly, elegantly constructed and so full of emotional power. Everything that happens in ANNIE AND THE FAT MAN is a surprise, but also the only thing that could possibly happen. This play is jaw-droppingly brilliant.

    Smart, funny, raw and passionate - this play challenges ideas of love, passion and friendship. Femia is a great writer.

    Moving and lyrical, Annie and the Fat Man walks a careful line between tragedy and triumph and does so BRILLIANTLY. The language and characters stuck with me long after I left the theater. Femia has created a world that feels intense, realistic - and somehow still magical.
