    This black comedy was a semi-finalist winner for the 2018 National Playwrights Conference at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center and long-listed for Theatre503's Playwriting Award by examining the troubling aspects of reality shows, the seduction of fame and who it profits. While we see the exploitation that Betts, the reality show producer, had inflicted on the extended family intent to win the Shark Tank like show, we also see the hilarious and heartbreaking manipulation that the family inflicted on each other which is only surpassed by the courage of Sarah who endures pornography, surrogacy and sex work.

    In a fever dream, a mortal named Bianca imagines that the many varied gods of Earth meet to vote on which human lives or dies. Dionysus with his wingman Seilenos hatch a plan to bolster Dionysus' stature by persuading Bianca to become the singer she has always wanted to be. Although Dionysus pitches his idea to the rest of the gods as his crisis of conscious, the goddess Mica (Mictecacihuatl of Aztec mythology) is not fooled by his false intentions. It is left to Mica to help Bianca with her life decisions and to convince Dionysus and Seilenos of their responsibilities in this new contemporary era.
