Emilia, a well to do Army wife, and Angelica, a live-in nanny, have never met, or have they? Their situations seem extremely familiar to one another the more they begin to explore the moments leading up to their meeting. Both spirited, A- personality women, they find themselves stuck (both physically and mentally). As their individual stories creep out ,they find that they have more than a few secrets to share. Racked by guilt, confusion and even suffering from disillusion, they explore the nature of their captivity as well as a shared personality flaw which seems to have landed them in this situation. Based upon significant, but often overlooked, female characters from “Othello” and “Romeo and Juliet”, these two women breathe new light and darkness into how they thought they had Aim’d so near.
