Navigate Up
A new play by Chisa Hutchinson
Directed by Jade King Carroll
Thompson Theatre, Roselle Center for the Arts



Meredith has made millions on her nonfiction writings about other people’s lives, with little consideration of the consequences.  When the press calls her out in scathing reviews of her most recent book on the homeless, her smart and savvy assistant, Samara, formulates a secret plan to save Meredith’s career. A pompous PR guy, a homeless phone-sex worker and a secret lover set the stage, but can Meredith pull her head out of her self-centered universe before she’s the only one left in it?
NOTE:  This comedy contains frequent profanity, graphic language, and strong sexual content. Recommended for mature audiences.


From The Author Of runs approximately 95 minutes, with no intermission.
