Dotty's life in Sterno with her husband Hamel is absolutely perfect! It's a fairy tale, it really is. True, in their seven years of marriage Hamel has forbidden her to leave their tiny apartment or speak to anyone, but Dotty is so very happy to spend her days watching video re-enactments of the day they first met. When a phone call from a mysterious woman threatens to tear her world asunder, Dotty must venture out into the vast city of Sterno, and try to discover what it is to be a "real" woman. Out of Sterno is a coming-of-age play in an Alice in Wonderland world. It explores the triumph and heartbreak of growing up and the contradictory societal pressures women face just trying to make it across town.

After a friend of mine read this script, one of the things he mentioned to me was that he felt a little uncomfortable with the fact that the men in the script were quite obviously props to advance the story of the women in the play. My immediate response to him was, "So that's how it feels to have traditional gender roles reversed."

This show is a must for anyone looking for an out-of-the-box comedy that will leave the audience feeling uplifted by its messages about womanhood.
