ABOUT THE SHOW:
In a Dallas Texas, Neiman Marcus changing room, on the most important day of her life, Annabelle Armstrong frantically searches for the perfect dress. A rising star in the Texas Democratic Party, Annabelle is trapped in the Reagan eighties. Her political career, love affair, finances, and family relations are in crisis; and strong-minded characters from her past begin to appear from behind the changing room mirror. FIX ME, JESUS is a dark comedy—the hilarious, timely, and poignant story of a woman who finds herself at the epicenter of history and politics, struggling for personal independence and social justice against the lifelong theft of her own power
