LIPSTICK By Lane Stanley Opens Thursday At at MadLab
Just in time for the holidays, MadLab brings you a silly, sweet, sexy farce in this play shaped love letter to the queer community. Lipstick opens December 5th.
Lipstick is a silly, sweet farce with a heart of gold and a drawer full of sex toys. Anna has invited Kelly over for dinner, but is it a date? Or just hanging out? How could Anna know?! Is Kelly even gay?! Kelly wears earrings AND boots! Just in case that wasn't confusing enough, a cavalcade of visitors crashes their evening - an ex-girlfriend, a nebby bestie, a handyman, a mom, and a parade of potential suitors. Hijinks, of course, ensue, in this play-shaped love letter to the queer community.
The world premiere is currently scheduled for fall 2019 at Island City Stage, but this would be a regional premiere.
