In the latest production from resident company Mirrorbox Theatre, Peter is a middle-aged fanboy determined to deliver a vital and mysterious message to Chiara, the young star of his favorite television show. Desperation drives Peter to violate his restraining order so he can fulfill this destiny at Comic Con. Chiara, meanwhile, is holed up in a hotel room, doing battle with her controlling “Mom-ager,” a Kris Jenner-like Svengali figure.

Peter and Chiara are both comically butting against the boundaries of authority and reality as they move toward a fateful and surprisingly touching meeting.

"What begins as a play about how people's fantasies can get in the way of their reality turns into a play in which people's reality can also screw up their fantasies” (Ocweekly.com).
