This play takes a comedic look at the grass being greener on entirely opposite sides. Jane Martin weaves the tale of a runaway, award winning, B-movie actress who is ‘somebody,’ namely Sheena Keener, who wants nothing more to do with people, fame or fanfare.  Sheena turns up seeking refuge in a low rent district of L.A. at the apartment of Loli, a runaway, homespun, ‘nobody’ girl who is fresh from Kansas, freshly fired from her job as a mechanic and desperately wants to be ‘somebody.’ What ensues is a hilarious look at the cult of celebrity. Time: Friday & Saturday, 8 p.m., Sunday, 2 p.m. Location: Marygrove College Theatre Contact: UDM Theatre, (313) 993-3270,
