In Looking for the Pony, press notes state, "Eloisa is finally ready to leave a lifeless career in finance to pursue a childhood dream when her sister Lauren is diagnosed with breast cancer. Lauren's perfect life and Eloisa's second chance collide as the sisters join forces to cure all that ails them. As funny as it is heart-breaking, Looking for the Pony is a rollercoaster ride through treatment, ambition, loss and acceptance."
The production features set design by Adam Koch, lighting design by Aaron Copp, costume design by Matthew Hemesath and sound design by Jessica Paz.
Following its world-premiere production, Looking for the Pony will play the Synchronicity Performance Group in February 2009. Lepcio's plays include One Nation Under, Eclipse, Hook & Eye and the musical The Bronx Casket Co. Tickets, priced $45, are available by phoning (212) 579-0528, or by visiting VitalTheatre.
