Stellar Cellar is a journey through a woman's subconscious under the guise of a radio talk show about wine. Written by Christine Ferrera and Dan Hanrahan and conceived for the stage by Temple Crocker, the piece has been performed in-progress at the 14 Karat Cabaret, The Charm City Fringe Festival and VisArts. Now in its final form, Stellar Cellar is a strange, intimate and surprisingly funny exploration of memory and loss.
