Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan, and an intoxicated chaperone, and you've got a show soup dense with delicious delight!

Through depictions of both sacred and secular spaces, some portrayed as she found them but most assembled through an accumulation of information, the spaces she is drawn to are thick with evidence of history and presence.
