"Rebeck cares enough about Haley to give her confidence, competence, humor and introspection, all while battling insecurity, incompetence, black moods, impulsivity and a noir-ish plot twist." –The Philadelphia Inquirer

In this comedic one-woman show we become the confidantes of Haley, a successful restaurateur and single mom who is just getting back into the dating world. Haley tells us of her ill-fated but highly entertaining encounters while sifting through her wardrobe and her enormous collection of shoes. Just when everything seems to go horribly wrong, connections come forward to help in the most unexpected ways.
