Dana Lynn Formby Price: $14.95

"When that baby's born . . . your life ceases being your life. That child owns every single one of your actions. Every breath of your body. Every dream that you ever had, Mrs Top Two Percent, those dreams are sucked out of you and poured into the soul of that child"

It's hard to pull yourself up by your bootstraps in this economy

Sue should know.

It's harder when you've got kids

Even whip-smart, talented ones like Judy

But Sue has big dreams for both her basement beauty shop and her daughter ...

... who's anxiously waiting for a letter from Berkeley that could change her life

Armed with tough love, combative humor and an uncompromising work ethic, Sue is struggling to balance her own livelihood and Judy's future

A heartfelt play about the true cost of dreams

Premiered at Chicago Dramatists in April 2016
