In a Neiman Marcus changing room in Dallas, on the most important day of her life, Annabell Armstrong frantically searches for the perfect dress. A rising star in the Texas Democratic Party, Annabell is trapped in the Reagan eighties. Her political career, love affair, finances, and family relations are in crisis; and strong-minded characters from her past begin to appear from behind the changing room mirror. Fix Me Jesus is a dark comedy—the hilarious, timely, and poignant story of a woman who finds herself at the epicenter of history and politics, struggling for personal independence and social justice against the lifelong theft of her own power.
The cast is:
Mrs. Craig – Amy Schaefer
Annabell – Jessica Wilson
Young Annabell – Briar Martin
Mother – Rachael Rhoads
Grandmother – Mary Lukas
Dr. Maxwell Feld – Ted Negus
