This solo performance play began as a class assignment for Tracy’s Dramatic Writing MFA program at Carnegie Mellon University. It was credited as a play that students “remembered from last year.”

When asked if this play was inspired by Tracy’s life, she replied, “I mean, the protagonist’s name is Kelly and mine is Tracy, so obviously it’s not about me. Also, I was 35 when I started dating again and this character is like 30.”
