All her life Diana hasn’t hit it off with the fellas. In 3rd grade, she kicked her crush in the crotch and her dating life didn’t improve from there.
What starts as a quick look into why Diana doesn’t date much, ends up a hilarious and heartbreakingly raw journey through dating, dysfunction, and sexual devastation - told through the voices of 35 characters.
Using flashback, narration and personified characters of the mind, Diana delivers a fast-paced, powerhouse performance filled with wit, poignancy and vulnerability - exploring themes such as the psychological fall out of sexual assault, the power of Shame, post-traumatic growth and much more.
In Shattered, Diana uses comedy to take us through tragedy - and triumphantly tell the tale of one individual picking up the broken pieces of herself and learning to live again.
