New Web Series ANGRY YOUNG WOMEN IN LOW-RISE JEANS WITH HIGH-CLASS ISSUES to Debut 10/11
Angry Young Women in Low Rise Jeans with High Class Issues, Matt Morillo's cult hit play that had various sold-out runs in New York, Los Angeles, and in Sydney and Brisbane, Australia, is set to make its debut as a web series on October 11.
That same day, Santa Ana College will open its production of the original stage play at 8pm. Playwright Matt Morillo, along with Jessica Moreno, producer and leading actress in the original New York and Los Angeles runs, will participate in a Q&A following the performance.
The web series, which will be available at www.angryyoungwomen.net, focuses on the lives of a bunch of twenty-and-thirty-somethings facing the eternal battle of the sexes through their awkward and messy adventures into the complex contemporary American social scene. Each episode will humorously and irreverently tackle issues such as female body objectification, interracial dating, sexual mores, generation gaps, and awkward sexual situations. It will all be done in the spirit of the play which was funny, raunchy, confronting, and most definitely a conversation starter.
Created by Matt Morillo and developed and produced by Morillo and Jessica Moreno, the web series stars (in alphabetical order) Cynthia Aldrich, Seth Austin, Dingani Beza, Becky Tahel Bordo, Jason Drumwright, Kandis Erickson, Alex Feldman, Drea Garcia, Mikayla Ryan Gibson, Carter Haley, Jenni Halina, Brooke Hasalton, Keenan Henson, Emily Lappi, Jessica Moreno, Jennifer Lane Oakley, and Jaret Sacrey. The cast includes several students from Santa Ana College.

The much talked about slogan for the play was, "Even though it's a play, it doesn't suck," so it follows that the new slogan is, "Even though it's a web series, it doesn't suck."
