Apartment Trouble

Nicole and Olivia are the 21st century Odd Couple. Nicole is an artist (of sorts) whose wealthy parents have cut her off, and Olivia is an aspiring (and unsuccessful) actress. They are lifelong friends, utterly penniless, and about to be evicted from their illegal New York sublease. With no money for food (calling it a “cleanse”) and no options, Nicole decides they should spring an unannounced visit on her TV celebrity aunt in Los Angeles. What better place to find grounding and stability than Hollywood? What better chance for success than by competing on her aunt's nationally televised reality talent show? With an uncharged phone and four dollars in cash, off they go to the Left Coast. Each night Olivia whispers to her tiny Trouble Doll, which is supposed to cure her troubles while she sleeps. Things are about to get loony and that doll has its tiny hands full! With snarky humor, dead-on satire, and a warm and crazy heart, APARTMENT TROUBLE is about making oddball dreams come true in a very strange world. – C.R.
