“Vanities”written by Jack Heifner, directed by Herb Tax
A bittersweet comedy that is an astute snapshot tells the story of the lives of three Texas girls. In 1963, Joanne, Kathy and Mary are aggressively vivacious cheerleaders. Five years later in their college sorority house, they are confronting their futures with nervous jauntiness. In 1974, they reunite briefly in New York. Their lives have diverged. Their friendship, which once thrived on assumption as well coordinated as sweater sets, is strained and ambiguous. Old time banter rings false. Time has changed their friendship in ways they never dreamed.
Performances dates: August 6, 7, 8,13,14,15, 20, 21, 22.
All performances will begin at 8PM. August 6th will be a “Pay-What-You-Can” performance.
