TRANSFORM. OUT LOUD. The Odd Couple meets Thelma and Louise in this wickedly funny comedy. With a recent divorce and her son living across the country, 50-something Sharon posts a listing for a roommate to fill the empty space in her Iowa home. Enter Robyn, a fascinating woman who needs a place to hide and the chance to start over. Hell-bent on getting to know Robyn despite their differences, Sharon deploys her friendly Midwestern charm at full force. This comical mismatch leads to a surprising and touching friendship that cleverly navigates the rocky roads of change and examines what happens when the wheels come off.

“Sassy, saucy, and shrewdly funny.” – DC Metro Theater Arts
