Mallbaby

Character Breakdown: 4M, 4F

 

Set/Technical: Unit Set with neon signage

Running Time: 100 minutes - no intermission

Between fertility appointments reporter Maggie Harris covers the U.S. Mall beat. Today's big story involves a modern-day baby Moses - a newborn found in the mall's movie theatre - sparking a search for his mother. The abandoned baby sets a whirlwind of confusion through U.S. Mall, as each person it touches is beset by emotions of longing and love in the frenzy of trying to find who this boy belongs to. Visions of a feral wildchild roaming the mall's dark underbelly and foraging from the Food Court plague Maggie and Solya, the teenage mother. What will become of a newborn baby left among the popcorn and ticket stubs, as the natural, unnatural and mystical worlds of the towering shopping monstrosity combine?
