SYNOPSIS: Every child grows up. Shadow, an unfortunate imaginary friend, must face this fact when Emily, her creator, has grown up before her eyes. Through her memories of happiness and perhaps delusions of that happiness Shadow relives her days with Young Emily, her creator as a child, as she begins to realize that sometimes there is no choice but to let go of what you once loved. Emily struggles alongside her imaginary friend as she hopes to reunite with the delinquent mother who once abandoned her, just as Emily inadvertently abandoned Shadow in turn. Make-Believe is an original play that explores the themes of loneliness, self-love, abandonment, family, friendship, the power of the mind, and letting go.
STARRING: Mary Kathryn Alford, Sylvia Czubarow, and Leah Bloom
