This funny and heartfelt play focuses on Carnelle Scott, a pageant hopeful with a large and dysfunctional family, who believes that winning the Miss Firecracker Contest will restore her reputation and vastly improve her life. But her path to the crown and sash becomes complicated when a cousin, a former Miss Firecracker winner, arrives unexpectedly. San Diego Theatre Critics Circle award-winner Samantha Ginn takes on the title role. Learn More

Triad Productions is pleased to announce Nicky Silver’s The Maiden’s Prayer as their first production of 2011 and their next step in reaching a new generation of theatre-goer. Triad Artistic Director, Adam Parker, returns to the helm to direct this hilarious and heartbreaking San Diego premiere.
Picking up where romantic comedies leave off, we start at the wedding of Taylor (Jason Perkins) and Cynthia (Sam Ginn). Pregnant and… newly married, their nuptials are soured by Cynthia’s acid-tongued sister Libby (Rhianna Basore). Infatuated with Taylor, Libby is joined in her mourning by Taylor’s best friend Paul (Nathan Caracter), who’s been in love with him since childhood. Following this confused quartet is Andrew (James Darvas), who has a predilection for falling in love with men and their cable television. Through their eyes we see Taylor and Cynthia’s perfect world begin to weaken, eventually buckling under a tragic loss. Libby and Paul commiserate over their own desires for Taylor, finding consolation in unlikely and often unsavory places.
Heartbreakingly sad, unfairly true and absurdly hilarious, The Maiden’s Prayer will leave you laughing, crying and cringing all in the same scene.
