Crumble (Lay Me Down, Justin Timberlake)

Author: Sheila Callaghan

Summary: A year has passed since the untimely death of Janice's father. Struggling to cope, Janice is holding spiteful conversations with her dolls, and Mother is suffering from panic attacks, with only her cooking skills to keep her busy. In their deteriorating Apartment that incessantly begs for repairs, their only comforts are visitations from their respective celebrity crushes - Justin Timberlake and Harrison Ford. With the support of Justin's affection, Janice begins to craft a plan that will mend the chasm in their lives. Meanwhile, the Apartment is developing murderous plans of its own...

Darkly funny, emotionally charged, and theatrically inspired, this is a critically acclaimed play.

'This is an amazing script, one I want to get my hands on and read again and again. It’s touching, bittersweet, brutally honest at times, and freakishly surreal at others... This is not a fluffy show, nor is it depressing. It is thought provoking.' - East Bay Voice

In 2010, playwright Sheila Callaghan was profiled by Marie Claire magazine as one of "18 Successful Women Who Are Changing the World." She was also named one of Variety magazine's "10 Screenwriters to Watch" of 2010.
