The New Normal

Donnetta Lavinia Grays

Anna is a 34-year-old broke, clumsy, wine sippin’ southern hairdresser living in Seattle, WA. She is a trying desperately to raise her 2-and-half-year-old son… and her would be rock star husband Kevin. In addition to a complicated marriage, Anna is searching to make sense of her recent title of “breast cancer survivor.” She has just returned from a weekend of fun with her survivor support group to find the house a wreck, the bills unpaid, and a mysterious stranger parked just outside of her home. Inspired by the life of 2009 Puget Sound Survivor of the Year Anna Warren Schumacher, The New Normal is a frank and, often times, witty play that tells the unique story of how a young woman finds humor and grace in the unexpected challenges of survival.
