A Full-Length Play
(4f & 1m / 85 minutes)

When 11-year old Emmaline goes missing, her family fears for her life.
When she suddenly returns, claiming she spent those unaccounted-for hours with "Mr. Cookie," a disco-dancing, truck-driving guardian angel -- who happens to bake the best cookies in the world -- they don't know what to make of her wild story. But something isn't right. As her account unfolds, Emmaline's family must decide if what happened in the hands of a mysterious stranger is nothing more than the imaginings of a precocious child. Or, if Emmaline's storytelling points to more sinister troubles, a secret that threatens the foundations of a family, a threat much closer to home...
