Cameryn Moore, brought to you by MainLine Theatre

A very new, not-quite-there work-in-progress by
Cameryn Moore

Waiting for the curtain to go up on the match of the century--or at least of the convention--our protagonist has some serious qualms about who she is and how the hell she got there, half-naked and with a chess board painted on her back. Her next choice could change the course of her life, and neither option looks good.
