This comic monologue offers an intimate evening with Willa, the one-time media darling, the food and design maven, the single-named boldface personality, who rose, conquered, and then fell. Her Emmy-award winning conversation-and-self-empowerment program has been cancelled. Her failed marriage has been luridly chronicled by the sensation-seeking tabloid press. Alone and humiliated, she has descended into a solitary life of alcohol, weed, and pain-filled memories. Always very funny, yet equally poignant, the play follows Willa’s disintegration and collapse. Stripped of her carefully constructed persona, Willa reaches out to all of us who are her fans — she loves us and needs us, and we love her and need her too.
