In the throes of her Inner Clown, trying to keep her red nose intact, Elizabeth calls up her six sisters, all named Elizabeth "the Developer, the Plumber, the Dreamer, the Inspector, the Gambler, the Slut" to help build a workable identity out of mirrors, fantasy, and PVC plumbing. Problem is, she doesn't have any sisters, and they're barely on speaking terms.
It's funny, dark, weird, intense and, yes, actually hopeful. It's about all of us with multiple identities that haven't been clinically diagnosed but that spur even the sanest of us to astonishing internal juggling acts.

Clowns are weird, so adults only, please.
