She lives on the streets until a kind citizen exposes the budding actress to a new career, with a pair of clear acrylic heels. HONESTLY, OK examines Nicole's life from homeless teen to successful theater director. A memory play, the tale flashes through time, with two women and one man representing all of the people who have touched Nicole's life.

"In “Awkward” by Lauren Stone, directed by Julia Griffin, two people travel a fair distance in order to meet in the real world after making an Internet connection. They discover that both have been lying about who they are and that any possibility of a real connection will depend on creating an entirely new relationship based on authenticity. I liked this show because it had a real sense of the pain of not having a connection based on truth and the loneliness of being separate and anonymous." Jerry Kraft
