Can't Ignore the Rat

a new play
written and developed by Emma Lea Hasselbach

a play about isolation, indoctrination, under-education, and curiosity 

*in process

"What else is there? I’m just a girl, I don’t think I’m supposed to want to go out of my home.

There’s “arsenic in the air” out there.

Here there’s just apple seeds.

I mean I do have questions and the ocean seems nice but wanting those things seems like wanting to touch the stars when the stars are there and not here.

Pretty-terribly-unlikely-to-happen.

And what would happen if I wasn’t here, at home.

What then?"
