Alyssa is Co-Creator, Co-Writer and Actor of Stuck!
Stuck! is about three amateur actresses (AKA cater -waiters) become unlikely friends as they bond over their shared struggles and passions. They discover that it really is about the [long ass] journey, not the destination.
Synopsis: It's been 10 years since high school, so it's probably about time to get the gang back together at their old stomping grounds, right? But as the liquor flows and the weather goes from bad to worse, secrets start to unravel and everyone is forced to confront a shared trauma from their past that most would rather forget. A dark comedy about nostalgia, friendship, and grief.
36 Juniper is a new play by Jessika McQueen, Shannon McInally & Alyssa Abraham.
Directed by Greg Pragel
