Overall, acting was well done. We enjoyed the wife the most. Kept my attention almost the entire time. The theater company is wonderful. Go support them. They were also kind enough to provide snacks and wine. That always makes the experience even better too.

About the Ticket Supplier: 3Girls Theatre Company
3Girls Theatre Company is a non-profit theatre company that develops, produces and promotes new plays written by women playwrights. Only 12-18% of new plays produced by the American mainstream theatre establishment in any year are written by women — an incredible statistic made even more so by the fact that this low percentage is roughly the same today as it was a century ago. We at 3Girls Theatre aren’t interested in debating the politics of this problem. We’re just interested in solving it!
Since our founding in 2011, 3GT has worked to address this problem by creating theatre experiences that let the voices of women and girls be heard, loud and clear. Our annual programs include our New Works Festival, Salon Reading Series and full productions, as well as educational programs and outreach projects that invite script submissions and participation from our larger community. These programs develop new playwrights, empower young woman and girls, and nurture LBT playwrights.
