Ella is a precocious and fiercely competitive actress whose aims in life are making her famous playwright father proud--and becoming famous herself. In the aftermath of a boozy, drug-fueled evening when Ella's father is particularly hurtful, she flings herself into the arms of a young director with whom she begins to collaborate on a one-woman show . . . about her father. Halley Feiffer's dark, probing, and much-anticipated new play is a fierce, funny, and gloves-off take on the eternal struggles of parents and children to find common ground.
