This is the story of Marg, self proclaimed "hard woman," who marries an abusive lout named Pissy Szkaluba when she gets pregnant by him at the age of 16, and then suffers years of abuse and self doubt until, pushed to the extreme of self loathing, she breaks free. The play consists of her telling her story in a scummy small town redneck bar, and singing songs about her life and eventual emancipation. She does this because, as she states at the end of the play, "If we don't tell each other stories about what's happened to us, we ain't gonna learn anything or go anywhere."
