Ebony Marshall Oliver, Alysia Reiner & More to Star in GUMMIES Industry Reading

A reading of the new play GUMMIES by LaCroix and Andi Villa Stover will take place on Friday, May 20 at 6pm at Open Jar Studios (1601 Broadway). By invitation only.

Starring in the reading of GUMMIES are Drama League Award nominee Ebony Marshall Oliver (7 Minutes, Chicken & Biscuits) as "Cheryl" and SAG Award winner Alysia Reiner (Sideways, "Orange is the New Black") as "Monica," with Samantha Morales (BAM's Medea, TFANA's Pericles) as "Paula," Sanda Bauleo as "Nancy," and Sophia Lucia as "Cathy." Casting is by Victor Vasquez (X-Casting).

Gummies tells the story of a group of multi-racial New Jersey sisters-in-law, bonded together by holding each other's secrets. Told in a series of vignettes that spiral out from a drunken night where they accidentally eat an entire roll of THC gummy tape, the piece mixes humor and pathos to explore the experiences of motherhood that are often left unsaid. Being a mother sometimes ruins your life, destroys your health, and makes you go insane. Many women know this, have experienced it or witnessed it, but is hardly ever discussed publicly. This play seeks to change that.
