Nine-year-old Jenny1538 is a perfectionist. She’s going for her sixth attempt to earn her Discovery badge. It’s the only badge she doesn’t have, and her presentation is a sure-fire win—she’s found 11 lost days from the 18th century. A play about identity, loss, and what it means when your outsides don’t match your insides.
Here and now. Since Jenny is giving a presentation to her scout troop, the space could be a church hall, a community center, a basement, or…a theater.
- JENNY. 9. Played by a grown man. Wears a Brownie uniform. Classic overachieving perfectionist.
- DOMINIC FRANCONIA. 40s. Sweatpants, tee shirt, sneakers—it’s the best he’s got. He does not have reliable shelter.
