(A world premiere production)

Directed by Nate Eppler

Starring: Rachel Agee, Amanda Card Compton, and Tony Nappo

Left behind on the garbage heap of history and misremembered by everyone (herself included), the world’s most infamous Olympic figure skater struggles to reinvent herself as a screenwriter by pitching the blockbuster screenplay of her own amazing life story and her spectacular triumph over stunning adversity. Armed with an old video camera, two actors she hired off craigslist, plastic fashion dolls, and homemade model ice rinks, she sets out to tell the real story. And she isn’t going to let the truth get in her way. Originally developed as part of the Nashville Repertory Theatre Ingram New Works Project, this knockout comedy is about what we remember, what really happened, and what we do when we’re the only person who believes we’re the hero of our own story.
