Billy leads a charmed life

He stays home all day, gets his diapers changed, sleeps in a crib

His Mommy cooks his dinner every night, tells him stories, and knits his security blankets

And he gets to look out the window and color in his books all he wants


Billy is actually thirty years old

And he's never been out of the apartment

But his "Mommy" is actually his older brother, who fills his head with terrifying nursery rhymes about everything outside

And the babysitter is a grad student

Her thesis topic is Billy

But she hasn't mentioned this crucial fact yet ...

Simple set - runs about 100 minutes


"Extremely funny and surprisingly moving" ~ Jane Durrell, CincyBeat

"Weird, dark, and refreshingly original" ~ Danielle Winterton, Ithaca Journal

"This show is brilliant. It's funny, it's dark, it's poignant [It] explores issues of exploitation, repressed memories, regression, and the power that human instinct holds over every decision we make" ~ Jennifer Davis, The Conveyor
