Photo Flash: Hell in a Handbag Productions presents THE GOLDEN GIRLS – THE LOST EPISODES

Hell in a Handbag Productions thanks you for being a friend this summer with its campy world premiere parody of one of TV's most beloved sitcoms: THE GOLDEN GIRLS - THE LOST EPISODES by David Cerda, directed by Shade Murray, playing June 14 - July 12, 2017 at Mary's Attic, 5400 N. Clark St. in Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood. Single tickets are on sale at www.handbagproductions.org or by calling (800) 838-3006.

Enjoy lost, never-before-seen episodes of The Golden Girls featuring Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, Sophia and all of the siblings, daughters, sons, characters and rare diseases that were mentioned once, but never again. The production also features The Golden Girls trivia and games to help fully embrace the Miami experience.

THE GOLDEN GIRLS - THE LOST EPISODES will feature: David Cerda as the forthright Dorothy, Ed Jones as the sweet airheaded Rose, AJ Wright as the lusty Blanche and Adrian Hadlock as the sharp tongued Sophia with Chazie Bly, Kristopher Bottrall, Grant Drager, Lori Lee, David Lipschutz, Terry McCarthy, Michael S. Miller and RoBert Williams.

In keeping with the Handbag tradition, THE GOLDEN GIRLS - THE LOST EPISODES is an original parody of the beloved show. Our Golden Girls find themselves in situations never before seen on television - that's why they're lost episodes! See Dorothy battle nature as they serve as Den Mothers to a group of Sunshine Cadets. Watch them band together as Rose struggles with a debilitating malady and gasp when you see Blanche home alone while the other girls go on vacation.

The production team for THE GOLDEN GIRLS - THE LOST EPISODES includes: Roger Wykes (set design), Myron Elliot (costume design), Cat Wilson (lighting design), Sydney Genco (make-up design), Mealah Heidenreich and Rachel Summerfield (props design) and Michelle Kidd (stage manager).
