Not every fairy tale has sunshine. This world-premiere play follows Dima, a 16-year old girl with a rare skin condition. Cloistered away in her bedroom, her parents worry that she’ll never have the “normal” American teenage experience they sought for her when they came to New York from Afghanistan. Little do they know that Dima’s getting by with some help from her secret friends — Elliot, a poet who hangs out under her window hawking rhymes, and Speedo, a talking nurse shark who saves the day in more ways than one. But will Dima get her happy ending? Rapunzel never had it this bad … or this good.
