In high school, Neely was deemed "Most Likely to Succeed," but at 19, she's still working at the Amoco station and taking care of her meth-addicted younger brother (their mom ran out on them in search of herself). Her best-friend is a small-time drug dealer (also 19) who's taking care of the baby he had with a girl who has gone off to college abandoning them both. Into this mess strolls a new cop, who takes an interest in Neely and starts to date her. A swift-moving, compassionate script about young adults in bad circumstances looking for a way out.

Secret Lives of Losers  premiered as a part of the UMKC Theatre Festival of New Original Work in Kansas City, MO in February 2006 under the direction of Meredith McDonough.
