Book, Music, & Lyrics by Kate Kilbane & Dan Moses Eddie’s life is going nowhere: a twentysomething, jobless high school dropout who lives with his mom, he suffers from crippling social and neural deficiencies. To cope, he retreats into his imagination and envisions himself as the charismatic frontman of a glam-rock band, just like his idol, David Bowie. But when Eddie’s mom informs him that her boyfriend is moving in, she threatens the one place in the world where he feels safe. The two plots—Eddie's actual life as a hermit and his imagined life as a rock star—first unfold in parallel and then merge as Eddie deals with the fact that his life must change.
