An unflinching look at what it means to be a woman.

One day, Jude loses it in a café and kicks a pram. Then gets arrested. Then gets sent to anger management. Her sister Susie goes with her to protect her anger management class from her anger.

This hilarious and brutal play takes us to some pretty serious places. As the story unfolds, we discover the depths of Jude's anger and grief and how the sisters conquer their lives.
