Fourteen year old Laney arrives in Oxford, Mississippi with a twisted back, a mother in crisis and a burning desire to be writer. When she befriends Maribel Purdy, a fervent believer in the power of Jesus Christ to save her from the humiliations of high school, Laney embarks on a hilarious spiritual and sexual journey that challenges her mother's secular worldview and threatens to tear their fragile relationship apart. Thursday performances benefit Depression & Bipolar Support Alliance and Covenant House. "The work of a big accomplished writer's voice...a gem of a discovery." - The New York Times "Gorgeous almost beyond belief." - The London Times "This is a wonderfully neat play, at once simple and complex, grappling with big issues - matters of faith, fantasy and the flesh - while keeping its sneakers firmly planted on the suburban topsoil of adolescent angst and domestic frictions." - The Daily Telegraph Crooked was first performed in a workshop production at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2004 and premiered Off-Broadway at The Women’s Project in New York City in April 2008.
