Melancholy Play
Directed by Jason Ballweber

This quirky romantic comedy introduces us to Tilly, whose 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 those around her.  Frances, Tilly's hairdresser, becomes so melancholy she turns into an almond.  It is up to Tilly to get her back.
