Let Miss Abigail take you back to a simpler time, before booty calls and speed-dating, back when the divorce rate wasn’t 50% and when ‘fidelity’ was more than an investment firm! It’s Loveline meets Dr. Ruth as Miss Abigail shares her vast knowledge of every piece of relationship literature known to mankind. The audience participates in this hilarious variety show, and Miss Abigail’s strapping young assistant, Paco, is there to provide for her every need. This smash off-Broadway hit will keep you laughing all night long – that’s the Miss Abigail guarantee! “Big laughs!” –Associated Press; “Truly a Can’t Miss!” –Harper’s Bazaar

It's the last meeting of the First Tuesday Book Club (which meets on Thursday!) and Allison, Mia, Fran, Louise, and Janice are all anxiously awaiting the arrival
of their celebrity guest. Janice is determined to make a good impression despite the fact she hasn't read the book. Louise is thrilled at the idea of being in the same
room as Oprah. Allison, however, is not convinced that Oprah's arrival will do anything but disrupt the meeting. Mia, arriving late as usual, is simply delighted
that she hasn't missed anything yet! And Fran is just waiting for a miracle to change the course of her entire life.
Always a Bridesmaid
by Jones, Hope, and Wooten

In this hilarious comedic romp, four friends have sworn to keep the promise they made on the night of their Senior Prom: to be in each other's weddings…no matter what. More than thirty years later, these Southern friends-for-life are still making "the long walk" for each other, determined to honor that vow. Forsaking all others, in sickness and in health, they repeatedly struggle to stage the perfect wedding in spite of fistfights at the altar, runaway brides and the mistaken, and unfortunate, release of a flock of white doves on the first day of hunting season.
Walter Cronkite is Dead
by Joe Calarco
October 18, 19, 25, 26 and November 1, 2, 8, 9, 2014
A fierce thunderstorm has shut down airports up and down the East Coast. Two women, who appear to have nothing in common, are stuck in a waiting area at Reagan National Airport. Patty is a chatty southerner—a blue-collar woman from a red state—who is almost physically unable to tolerate silence. Margaret is a Washingtonian, reserved, educated, liberal and not interested in sharing her thoughts, or her table, with Patty. Forced together for a long night in a public place, the two strangers have no choice but to share a bottle of wine and begin to talk…and to listen. Their conversation is funny, difficult, deeply revealing and astonishingly frank. "…very funny, thoroughly charming…The play is a ninety-minute treasure chest that keeps revealing new gems of wisdom and humor, right to the end." —North County Times San Diego.
