Edna just graduated from college. Her paychecks come from a five-year-old. Her brother died in Iraq. She needs to fuck him back to life.
'The Mistakes Madeline Made' is a darkly comedic look into figuring out the next step once you've graduated from college with a 'piece of paper' degree, all while being surrounded by the beast that is New York City. But more than that, it is a play about loss and mending as part of a generation that has grown up entirely in the presence of war. Edna's plan of attack? No more bathing.
