Stay in character. Keep smiling. Never, ever, ever use the bathroom. Newbie party princess Madeleine must learn to live by a few simple rules—but when the past unexpectedly catches up with her on the job, those rules are the least of her problems. Trapped in a bathroom and a polyester bustle, caught between a boss and a group of rambunctious toddlers, Madeleine must confront her past and shape her future in this outrageous one-act comedy.
