Tilly, a bank teller, personifies melancholy, which proves to be contagious in the world of MELANCHOLY PLAY.  She is NOT depressed, but lives in such a sensual, yearning state of being that everyone she meets falls in love with her, including her therapist, her tailor, and her hairdresser.  A whimsical, incredibly playful modern fairy tale that examines of the values of living in and enjoying the beauty of this active, sensorial state of being that our current culture has mostly left behind.  Despite our modern connotations of the word Melancholy, the play is not sad at all, but a highly stylized and imaginative comedy.
