1 woman. 50 characters. "CALLING AMERICA: DON'T HANG UP", is a 90 minute exploration into America's diverse inhabitants, searching desperately for the "American Dream" as the Planet goes awry, spiraling into madness. SKY portrays a melting pot of hilarious and heart-wrenching characters from her wild double life as a non-profit telephone-fundraiser in Hollywood. SKY's real-life stories of mixing and mingling in DC with such political figures as Mitt Romney, Karl Rove, and Donald Rumsfeld... juxtaposed against her "normal", everyday exciting life of an on-the-edge artist hanging out with well-known Hollywood celebrities and practicing extreme leftist activism, makes for an engaging and inspiring event of theatre not to be missed! Through stories, songs, humor, and a whole lot of characters, Sky's always-changing comic commentary touches upon poignant and timely themes such as immigration, war, health care, gay marriage, racism, teen bullying, Humanity, Justice, politics, and the quest for The American Dream.
