HOPE is the story of three women: Rose, a prostitute in the 1950's; Alice, a spirited, yet haunted wife and mother; and Hope, an Irish-Mexican storyteller who examines the fragments of her life in order to understand how she has survived and how she will thrive in the second half of her life. It is a darkly comic play about women's voices and women's choices; addiction and abuse; healing and survival. It is about HOPE.


The great Edward Albee wrote, 
“Sometimes it’s necessary to go a long distance out of the way in order to come back a short distance correctly.”

The show centers around three women and their relationships. Rose, a prostitute in the 1950's, Alice, a wife and mother, and Hope, the storyteller, connecting these unlikely heroines. 

It's about women who survived the unthinkable and carved a pathway for the other to ultimately stand on their own.

I think in telling these particular stories at this time, there is healing, and in healing they are set free.

This show is about the power of being a woman and the power of truth. 

It's about women's voices and women's choices, healing and survival. 

It’s about finding your inner warrior and facing the unthinkable. 

It’s about finding “Home.”

It's about hope.
