Help Fund Amelia's Dream Show!

For a few years now, I've been slowly working on a one woman show, "All She Cares About is the Yankees," by John Ford Noonan. I first discovered my dream role, like so many have, sitting at the tables in the back of The Drama Book Shop.  I used an excerpt as an audition monologue, when I was asked to find a "piece that speaks to your soul and can make you fall flat on your face." The play is about an agoraphobic woman who attempts time and time again to make it out of her apartment, acting out scenarios to inch closer and closer to her door with the help of her half life size Yankee dolls that populate her West Village home. When I fell in love with this character, I could never have guessed how the whole world would come to know what it feels like to be so stuck... so trapped and isolated in fear and desperation. Spanky knows deep down that the only way out is through, and if she can find a way - then we all can too! 

I am ready to begin this journey of getting this play up on its feet! I am looking for a director and producer... and some money to pay for them, and for some production costs... and well, for huge Yankee dolls!

With the help of the incomparable, Kirsten Russel, here is a little sneak peak of Spanky's story, in short film format.
