The Providence of Neighboring Bodies

Imagine three eccentric women in a small Rhode Island town. There’s Ronnie, the English teacher with an admittedly-poor command of the English language. Her neighbor, Doris, has lived here all her life—just a few blocks away—yet seemingly has no friends in town, and is desperate to make Ronnie her bestie; to say that she has a screw loose is a few screws too few! With these two, their inner dialogues are each hilarious in different ways; put them into a conversation and the awkwardness adds to the comedy and leads to certain trouble.
