About the Play

What happens when Mary sees her fiancé making out with his co-worker on national TV at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade? She dumps him and drops her engagement ring into a Salvation Army kettle. She then spends the next year being set up, hooked up, strung up, and fed up as she navigates her life “alone” as a New York actor in her thirties—Sex and the City for real people, with no Mr. Big in sight. ASC veteran actor Ginna Hoben writes and stars in this delicious one-woman show about how much the holidays suck after your heart’s been crushed.
