Harlowe

After suffering a potent physical trauma, Harlowe loses her sense of touch. When her sister brings her home to convalesce, she retreats to the bathroom and spends hour after hour languishing in the tub. HARLOWE is a story of sisters and bodies; it is a story of how we heal.

    Harlowe is a bit of a theatrical miracle. We start out with a heavy, dark, poetic monologue from a woman (Harlowe) in a bathtub. This woman is in pain, real pain, pain she is aware of and can no longer feel. Then she is interrupted and suddenly Harlowe and the audience are thrust into a real world that's as hilarious as it is complex. Moving seamlessly in and out of her protagonist's thoughts and fears, Jenny Lane has written a beautiful latticework of familial need and insecurity as Harlowe and her brood verge ever closer to healing.

    A beautiful heart wrenching play that explores how one deals with both physical and emotional trauma. The way Jenny creates images that infect your mind is one of the many reasons this show needs to be produced.

    At its heart, a great examination of the vulnerability and self-imposed isolation that can develop after physical & emotional trauma. But wrapped in a funny/sad family drama. I really want to see this show produced.
