THE GREAT DIVIDE
Written and performed by Amy Crossman.
Directed by Scott Ebersold

Everything is fine!  No, seriously, no one’s got a drinking problem, and the panic attacks are just, no, they’re – it’s fine, everything’s fine!! A comedic roller coaster ride that explores love, heartbreak, and choosing life in the face of incalculable loss.

A rollercoaster you won’t want to miss! From the birth of love to its shattering heartbreak, it’s a wild ride. And what really matters is what comes next, the fresh start after the storm. Picture this: a trashy NYC apartment, and a dress that’s maybe a bit too daring, a New Year’s Eve bash where your latest crush is the only familiar face in the room. Every look, every laugh—it’s all building blocks for your unique “Meet Cute” or maybe that brutal rejection. Which path will you choose? The Great Divide is a darkly funny and utterly heart-wrenching play.
