Written by 18 year old playwright phenom Madelein Bowman- The Fortune Teller features a young couple, Marcus, and his pregnant wife, Helen. As Helen nears the end of her term, they both become very worried about what kind of parents they will be to their child. Tammy, Helen’s high-strung friend, suggests that they visit a fortune teller. After a brief enigmatic session with Ludmilla Lyudbotchka, Helen leaves with more questions than answers. As the story continues, she eventually gets her answers through hilarity, tears, and quite a bit of opera.
