ABOUT THE PLAY
“After being assigned more work than she can handle, social worker Lewis has a nervous breakdown, tries to kill her boss, and is committed for psychiatric observation. After being restrained, Lewis recalls her true-life experiences working with prostitutes, drug addicts, and prisoners, portraying twenty-five different characters from pimps to menopausal women.
“Call Me Crazy”…a unique look at the highs and lows of working for peanuts while trying to save the world one poem at a time.”
