Photo Flash: Top Atlanta Talent Brings Popular Local Playwright's Regional Hit PERFECT ARRANGEMENT Home
Theatrical Outfit proudly presents the Atlanta professional debut of Perfect Arrangement by local award-winning playwright Topher Payne. Inspired by true stories of McCarthy-era social survival, this bubbly cocktail party-meets-TV sitcom simmers into poignant realism as two closeted couples, one gay and one lesbian, face exposure and a future more gray than Technicolor.
Directed by Adam Koplan (artistic director of Flying Carpet Theatre; director of The Outfit's The Dancing Handkerchief) and featuring an all-star Atlanta ensemble - Ann Marie Gideon, Clifton Guterman, Joe Knezevich, Stacy Melich, Courtney Patterson, Kevin Stillwell and Ann Wilson - Perfect Arrangement runs February 22 - March 18, 2018 and continues Theatrical Outfit's 2017- 2018 Season of Character.
ABOUT THE PLAY: 1950. Georgetown. Washington, D.C. As the Red Scare looms large, two State Department employees, Bob and Norma, receive orders to expose "moral turpitude" within the government. But, the coworkers are gay and lesbian and have married each other's partners, Millie and Jim, in a picture-perfect façade of domestic, mid-century bliss separated, literally, by a shared closet door.

Tickets range from $18-$51* and may be purchased online at www.theatricaloutfit.org or by calling 678.528.1500. Group pricing is available.
