INTERRUPTIONS (or The Play for Rosie's Women)
Written by: Tatiana Kouguell-Hoell
Joanna is a young woman recently incarcerated on Rikers Island, despite her surroundings she tries to keep a positive attitude, especially when her sister, Sage, comes to visit her. Mouly is a college senior going through a horrible break-up. Her best friend Lola tries to support her, but heartbreak and first love are about to test their friendship. The stage is split between Mouly's dorm room and Rose M. Singer's (Rosie's) correctional facility on Rikers Island as we discover how the lives of all four women are intertwined and connected.
