Tell Me Something Good

3f, 5m, 1 girl


TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD is a patchwork play that attempts to explore and consider all the ways that we get lost in the world. It is a collection of intertwining, pathos-rich character studies in the form of scenes and monologues, all traversing the landscape of the human condition—love, desire, ache, longing, disillusionment, loneliness—and the power of human connection. Every character is experiencing something of an existential tipping point. A beautiful, meaningful piece of theater that will leave its audience touched and then moved by its sublime reach.

“An evening of disparate characters entangled in high-stakes moments of self-doubt—some trivial, most life-threatening, some bordering on life ending. Audrey Cefaly (Maytag Virgin, The Gulf, Alabaster, Trouble) has an intimate understanding of human suffering and examines the ache of life in these tender stories with the most ordinary of characters.”—Jack Cannon, Professor of Theatre, University of Alabama at Birmingham
