Unpack your mess

Are you escaping your inner demons or just running away from yourself?


In this cathartic memoir, the playwright attempts to answer this question while exploring her need to avoid her troubled past through travel and self-destruction. Originally written as a healing exercise to cope with shame, Melissa Rose explores her own toxic behavior and the damage it creates when her baggage is left unchecked. 

Written and performed by Melissa Rose, directed by Mia Vance and accompanied by music from Cullen Vance,  Baggage recounts the story of the playwright’s experiences as a touring spoken word artist in the United States and Europe.
