Ernestine Crump is a teenager with a vivid imagination. When life disappoints her, she rejiggers reality into happier snippets.

"At least I wish he had said that," the 17-year-old narrator of Lynn Nottage's Crumbs from the Table of Joy says after treating us to brief scenes showing the way she'd like things to be.

Crumbs from the Table of Joy Through June 11 at Center Stage, 700 N. Calvert St. $10-$60. 410-332-0033 or centerstage.org
