Early Landry, a recent widower from Mississippi, is re-located to Los Angeles after a suicide attempt, to remain under the watchful eye of his sister. When Early chooses to move to his own apartment in a rough part of Hollywood, his stability is tested against his need to find independence. Soon he becomes charmed by his neighbors, one of whom is Freda Von Rhenburg, a transgender sex worker as lonely as he is. Friends first, their unlikely bond is the centerpiece of the play, and eventually matures into a tentative romance. In another first, the Detroit premiere will feature a transgender actress, Samantha Rogers, playing the role of Freda.
