As before, Mary B. Robinson directs. Pat Dignan is the lighting designer, Bart Fasbender sculpts the sound and costumes are by Michael Krass. The work is described as "an evening that celebrates contemporary women, diverse in calling and character, each on fire in her own way, burning with pain, passion, fear, wisdom, faith, a sense of justice, and even the desire to shop." Ivey is the only actor in the piece. She play nine "passionate women on the brink of self-discovery."

The versatile Ivey has appeared on stages of all descriptions. Recent credits include Martha in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? at the Alley Theatre, The Women of Lockerbie Off-Broadway for The New Group and Follies on Broadway. She won her Tony Awards for her work in Steaming and Hurlyburly.
