Show synopsis A dark psycholgical thriller from a brilliant new talent, set in the out-on-the-edge world of alternative comedy. Meet Lenny Bruce in a Dress (aka Jamie Gee), an inspirational stand-up comic with enough cutting edge to rival Boadicea. The punters love her -- they think she's tough and in control, but they don't know the real Jamie. Inside she's lost, vulnerable and desperate for love -- something Lily Carlson finds out when she becomes her best friend and then her manager. And sassy, smart-talking, ambitious Lily soon realizes that looking after Jamie means more than just booking gigs -- it's a lifetime's commitment. Lily's up for it , though, even when she can no longer ignore the fact that Jamie's fatal flaw is men. The victim of a brutal past, she has an unerring ability to pick Mr Wrong, and, as Jamie lurches from one bastard to the next, Lily and beautiful Asian transvestite Mojo do the damage-limitation thing, making a sanctuary of their rundown old house. But they'd all reckoned without Sean Powers, a vicious psychopath with the face and body of a god, who threatens to smash the menage a trois that sustains them. It's easy to see what makes Jamie fall so hard for Sean, but what's in it for him? And what does he really want from her? Dark, edgy and utterly convincing, Stone Baby is set to become the cult read of the year.
