Where's Julie?

Description: 15-year old Julie runs away from home to escape her abusive father, her delusional mother, and her autistic younger brother, only to find herself "knocked up" by her pothead boyfriend, harassed by her selfish older sister, and shunned by her Born-Again Christian friend - but, when she contemplates abortion, that's when the play gets really funny.
