A funny play about a serious illness: major depression. Tilly’s melancholy is of an exquisite quality. She turns her melancholy into a sexy thing, and every stranger she meets falls in love with her. One day, inexplicably, Tilly becomes happy and wreaks havoc on the lives of her paramours. Depression is serious. Recovery can be disastrous. Or wonderful. There will be talk backs after several shows.
