Collaboration Town and Sister Scars Present ALL GIRLS, 3/28-4/13
Collaboration Town in partnership with Sister Scars will present the World Premiere production of ALL GIRLS, written by Anna Greenfield (Norma and Claude Get Married at the Lee Strasberg Institute) and directed by Lee Sunday Evans (The Play About My Dad at 59E59). The production will feature Zoe Costello, Anna Greenfield, and Anna Ryan Konkle.
All Girls is a hyper real, sometimes surreal play about three teenage girls and one colossally scary mother. Trembling on the brink of womanhood, the girls act out with one another and their families in the most outrageous ways imaginable. It's also funny
The production will run March 28-April 13 at The Kraine Theater (85 East 4th Street between 2nd Avenue and Bowery); Thursday through Saturday at 8pm. Tickets ($18; $15 students & seniors) are available online at www.horseTRADE.info or by calling Smarttix at 212-868-4444.
