About this project
We made it through both our goals! Now we have a new one!
A nice even $12,000!
This will be the final goal, and if we reach it, it's a cause for celebration! What better way to celebrate than with shot glasses? Every Kickstarter donor (of any amount) who comes in person to a show will get a complimentary shot glass. Come see the show twice? Get a second one! It's been a fantastic run and we're so grateful. Let's relax a bit now, huh?

While preparing for an interview, Celia invites a young man, Maycomb, inside her New York townhouse after he explains he is a friend of her roommate, Michelle, a successful actress. As they talk, she slowly starts to realize Maycomb’s feelings towards Michelle border on obsessive.
Michelle, despite being in a relationship, begins romantically pursuing her acting partner which creates intense friction between her and Celia and greatly disturbs Maycomb.
Unhealthy explores the nature of dependency and how it can tear a person apart. Each of the characters forms intense parasitic relationships with one another. Unhealthy shows the consequences of being cut off from such a strong need. It also addresses how drastically morality can shift depending on whose needs you take into account. How far should you go to help someone who can’t be helped? How far can you go?

In order to put this project together, we need a lot of money. The creative team, with the help of some amazing donors, have put in some money already though and so we're a good way through. All money raised through Kickstarter goes directly into the project, not to the creative team's fees. With the remaining money from Kickstarter, we can get the space, sets, costumes, props, and hire all the right people. We can also do a bit of publicizing and marketing, so more people can see the show.
And what if we exceed the goal?
Well... it depends by how much. Once we have enough to perform, the first thing the money will go towards is getting a professional video recording and then putting that online for Kickstarters. That means if you're from California (or anywhere that's not Manhattan) and can't make it out to see Unhealthy, we'd have a digital copy waiting for you!
We also have a couple surprise tricks up our collective sleeves for you guys if we get past our goal, but we'll let you in on those as we get closer.
