Anderson directs the play, which is based on the true story of Fitzpatrick’s childhood friendship with a girl named Elizabeth, who was hearing impaired and who passed away soon after Fitzpatrick left home to become an actress. The play is co-produced by Matt Lawler with additional support from the Rude Mechanicals Theatre Company.
Fitzpatrick recently appeared in I Coulda' Been a Kennedy at the New York International Fringe Festival and in the play Breakfast and Bed in the 2006 EST Marathon.
