When punk rock exploded in L.A., Sally and Lou were there: feminists, Latinas, queens of noise. One went pop, one stayed punk, but sparks from their tumultuous friendship remain. Decades later, can they overcome old wounds, forgive each other and rock as hard as they ever did?

A support group for sex addicts meets every Monday in the little seaside town of Pescadero, California. But where is Dr. Jurgensen, the therapist who’s supposed to lead the group? And is Dr. Jurgensen’s earnest intern who's left to lead the group in over her head? When Matt shows up, any illusion of a “safe space” shatters and the group must confront difficult truths and unexpected points of connection in a comedy about addiction, identity and sex. “(W)holeness” asks the question, “Am I too damaged to be loved?”

While Steve mourns the loss of his wife Claudia, her mother Guadalupe and best friend Raquel work to translate her books into Spanish. Though Guadalupe and Steve have nothing in common but shared grief, they bond in the most unexpected ways. This new play is a deeply moving and very funny celebration of life, new beginnings and the healing power of telenovelas.
