Crossing Over

Lily Green, a twenty something tele-commuter who is more afraid of leaving her apartment than the horror films she regularly watches, finds herself stuck in a very precarious position one evening when Cece, her octogenarian neighbor from upstairs shows up at her doorstep claiming that a ghost is haunting her apartment, and that Lily must help her exorcise it.  The bulb above Ceceís door, which usually casts safe and protective light has suddenly gone out and in its absence, the sepctre has moved in.  All Cece wants is for Lily to cross over her threshold and help her change a lightbulb.  But crossing over means opening herself up to a world Lily is convinced does not want her. 

Crossing Over was commissioned and performed as part of the Prospect Theaterís Musical Theater Lab

 

Crossing over is a macabre highwire act balancing the goofy with the grotesque, the bizarre with the beautiful, and is ultimately a meditation on fear: fear of the unknown, fear of ourselves, fear of alienation.
