Amidst pounding chaos, Hayden has a dissociative panic attack at a rave where she knows no one. In the wake of a social anxiety disorder diagnosis, APLOMB explores how Hayden must re-frame her life history, relationships, and self identity upon realizing she's been perceiving the world through a distorted lens.

Director Alex Keegan created APLOMB with an all-female ensemble through long-form improvisation. Keegan has been developing the piece with The Habitat since 2015, in the Directors Playground, an incubator for director-driven projects run by Katie Lindsay & Caroline Gart.

The Habitat is dedicated to putting women's stories at the forefront and supporting the work of female practitioners. Through productions, development programs, and readings, The Habitat creates work that is necessarily theatrical, always political, and deeply personal.
