ALLIE’S APPENDIX

Robin nails the ‘ah-ha’ moment that audiences love. The balancing act she’s perfected between outrageous humor and tender sentiment is an art form meant to be seen on stage again and again.

– Maureen Brady Johnson, educator, playwright (Ohio)

Allie needs an emergency appendectomy, but she and soon realizes that St. Anthony’s isn’t a run-of-the-mill hospital. A by-the-book nun suspects Allie isn’t straight and warns that there will be no leaving until she speaks her sexual preference out loud. A statue of a Catholic saint is determined to help Allie “confess all” to her wackadoodle mother who shows up with a pocketbook full of pills. When Allie’s girlfriend pops in, all hell breaks loose. Maybe coming out of the closet is the best path to follow – and maybe not in every case. Surreal, but solid story.
