A call from home sends writer/performer Vickie Tanner (Stomp, Tantalus) on a whirlwind tour of her life, proving wherever you go, there you are. Riveting and audacious, this is an extraordinary true story. Most of the men in her immediate family served time in prison; her family ridiculed her for choosing to study and to speak standard English; ultimately she defined herself and defied the odds. She takes the audience on a ride from her misguided upbringing in the rough Compton neighborhood of Los Angeles to her pursuit of a life as an actor. “She exudes a warmth and generosity that invites the audience into the story of her past without making them feel like voyeurs.” – The Skinny
