The Sugar Syndrome, the show I am producing as well as acting in is what I like to call a spine punch play. Billed by Playscripts as a "dark comedy" some of its running themes include pedophilia, bulimia and sex addiction. We began rehearsals this week and my rock star director lived up to all expectations. This woman shies away from nothing. We are digging in, around, inside and under every addiction and psychosis these characters have. On the day we looked at pedophilia, I went home and cried for an hour.
