Performed at Childsplay, a theater for kids. Nobody understands Vanessa. She is happiest alone in her room creating inventions out of interesting objects she finds. When her mother does the unthinkable, and invites Timmy Fibbins over to play, she has to step out of her comfort zone and maybe—just maybe—make a friend. This moving and surprisingly funny play introduces audiences to a young girl struggling to come to terms with the loss of her father. In a world where imaginary friends seem real, and real friends are scarce, Vanessa discovers both.
