Isolated in a poetic maze of grief, Andromeda practically lives on the
roof of her Brooklyn apartment. She attempts to escape by connecting
with two men in her building, but as the words get louder Andromeda
must fight to end the poem before she’s lost in it forever.
Up Above & All Around celebrates recovery and finding the words yourself.

In 1980, real life Welsh boxer Johnny Owen traveled to Las Vegas to compete for the World Bantamweight championship title. The play follows three fictional women, all close to and with strong feelings about Johnny, in the days leading up to and the days after the dramatic match that Johnny fought. The women confess their true feelings and dreams as the tempers, tension and stakes continue to rise. "A transporting tale...the play makes a complete round trip in record time- from life to art, then back to life."
