About Ready to Go: “Ready to Go” depicts the struggle between the realities and dreams of a woman’s life. Her recurring encounters with death (literal and figurative) creates a dichotomy of hopelessness yet aggressive determination. Ultimately, the hope that death is not the end but the beginning, creates lasting peace. This solo hopes to encourage the audience to walk on and keep on going.
