THE ICE TREATMENT
Finalist Steinberg/ATCA New Play Award 2017; Winner 2017 M. Elizabeth Osborn New Play Award
Left behind on the garbage heap of history and misremembered by everyone (herself included), the world’s most infamous Olympic figure skater struggles to reinvent herself as a screenwriter by pitching the blockbuster screenplay of her own amazing life story and her spectacular triumph over stunning adversity.
Armed with an old VHS video camera, two actors she hired off craigslist, plastic fashion dolls, and homemade model ice rinks, she remakes her past by transforming it into the best sports movie you’ve never seen.
She’s reclaiming her life story and she isn't going to let facts get in the way of what she knows to be true: She’s the hero.
