Overview of Show
Second Week in FEB , 2020SaraSolo Festival - TBD
In response to realizing that she is suffering from chronic discontent and motherhood-overload, Theresa takes a month-long hiatus, diving head-first into the vibrant culture, tradition and mystery of India. In the ancient world of Sanskrit and sandals, she discovers meditation and in practicing it, is introduced to four wacky and wild fairytale princesses, each of whom share their real stories from emotional turmoil and self-victimization, to true empowerment. In doing so, they provide a hilarious and heartfelt brand of tough love that takes her from self-loathing to causeless joy. You will laugh and cry your way to opening your own heart, as you see yourself mirrored in Theresa'a honest and authentic performance.

"Ms. Puskar embarks on a journey to find herself in the midst of chaos, and conveys a universal lesson from which we can all benefit…The true beauty of this play is in Ms. Puskar's journey from her stressful but privileged world to a land of far greater problems. I would compare her story to a stage adaptation of 'Eat, Pray, Love'...Ms. Puskar has impressive acting skills and great respect for other cultures."
