Synopsis

A couple of oddly intrusive passengers. A perplexing older couple. New parents. A loud family with a bratty kid. This is the company Dana keeps while she waits in a crowded airport for her next flight to … well … to wherever she’s going. But not all is as it seems as Dana, a self-proclaimed “bad girl,” tries to pass the time during this never-ending layover. As she interacts with the other waiting passengers, Dana begins to learn that if she wants to get where she’s going, she’ll have to figure out who she really is.

Customer Reviews

"This show was great for a group of high school students. It allowed us to involve many cast members. The set was easy to create and the lighting was easy for high school students to play around with artistically. Costuming was easy to pull off with a low budget."
Review by Ashley Eckroth, Mariemont High School, Cincinnati, Ohio
