In Deana Barone’s solo concoction, she tells a non-linear, experimental, partially improvisational, and interactive story, breaking conventions and the fourth wall. She inhabits eccentric and poignant characters and explores growing up as a first-generation American in the Midwest educated in a religious enclave, with a mentally ill sister, an adorable mother, a sick brother, and a guru-like father who believes the bible is propaganda.

Mind-fu*k fever dream

Have you ever lived with someone and it didn't work out? Like a manic, time-jumping fever dream- Bobbie and August recreate all of their highs and lows of their relationship. Only, they have differing memories and perceptions of the events.

Motivational. Transformational.

A gripping story that will ENGAGE, INSPIRE & MOTIVATE YOU. It blends humor & the passion we all share to live an epic life. In his unconscious moment of death, Mike reaches out to his sons with loving messages to live big, purposeful lives.
