The Gossip Plays at the Abingdon this Tuesday 3/13!

(you know you love me as a playwright. xoxo.)

Friends! I want to invite you to a performance this Tuesday of a 10-minute play I wrote as part of the The Abingdon Theatre Company's Gossip Plays Benefit Series. My play is titled, "The President is GAY! (and other delicious scandals.)" It's sort of Golden Girls meets Mean Girls scenario. Potential political and personal scandals abound. You'll love it. No one eats cheesecake or gets hit by a bus, unfortunately, but they weren't allowed props so I didn't include those homages. Anyway, if you can come that would be fantastic. I'm sure it will be a fun night of short plays from all the different playwrights. I've really enjoyed working with the cast and director during the last week of rehearsals. You have two chances to see it - one night only. The runtime of the 5 shows selected is about an hour, so you'll be in and out lickety-split. I hope you can make it! xoxo!
