In her path are the 1968 riots, the first Gulf War, the Freedom of Information Act and herself. There's also an archivist named Keith, a cop named Perry and a kid named Cleo. And finally there's the question of just how much about anything do we really need to know.

Directed by Lucie Tiberghien, A Small, Melodramatic Story features Carlo Alban, Quincy Tyler Bernstine, Lee Sellars, and Isiah Whitlock Jr.,

Stephen Belber�s plays include Match (Broadway), McReele, Tape, Carol Mulroney, One Million Butterflies, Drifting Elegant, The Transparency of Val, The Wake, Through Fred and The Death of Frank.
