It’s a bitter winter night when 16-year-old Bernadette, an aspiring short story writer, boards a train to New York City carrying her notebook and important news for her boyfriend. What follows is a searing and poetic coming-of-age story as Bernadette intimately shares her encounters along the way and the devastating result of her visit, a journey punctuated by both a need to be heard and an aching desire to disappear.

Written by Pulitzer Prize finalist Adam Rapp, one of America’s most prolific young authors whose credits include HBO’s “In Treatment,” the film Winter Passing, and productions at Playwrights Horizons, New York Theatre Workshop and Steppenwolf Theatre, this shockingly articulate piece was praised by The New York Times for its “striking imagery” and “elegant prose.” Ali Rose Dachis, a graduate of the University of Minnesota/Guthrie Theater B.F.A. Acting Training Program who enjoyed her Guthrie debut in the acclaimed production of Circle Mirror Transformation, reunites with director Benjamin McGovern to play Bernadette in this startling portrayal of a young woman emerging into adulthood.
