At an age when most people are discovering what they want to do with their lives, Porter (Grace) has been married and divorced, earned seven figures as a corporate “ninja,” and had a nervous breakdown. It’s been four years since he’s had a job or a date, and he’s decided to give life another shot. Lonely, I’m Not is a comic journey that follows Porter as he meets an ambitious young businesswoman who is overcoming her own obstacles to emotional success.
Lonely, I’m Not features scenic design by Mark Wendland, costume design by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Matt Frey, sound design by Bart Fasbender and projection design by Aaron Rhyne.
