Nellie Bly, aspiring daredevil reporter, went undercover in an insane asylum on Blackwell's Island (now Roosevelt Island) in New York City, 1887. There she befriended a patient named Anne Neville. After 10 days, Nellie was sprung from the asylum to write her story. Anne stayed.
This expressionistic play tells the above story from Anne Neville's perspective.
