The Falcon Theatre is thrilled to present the new hit comedy The Catholic Girl's Guide to Losing Your Virginity written by Annie Hendy and directed by Gregg W. Brevoort, the fourth production in its 2010-2011 Subscription Season. This sexy and irreverent play stars playwright Annie Hendy and Cyrus Alexander (Falcon Theatre's Everybody Say "Cheese" and The Psychic).

The Catholic Girl's Guide to Losing Your Virginity tells the hilarious and invigorating story of Lizzy, a witty and soulful Midwestern girl blossoming in the big city of her dreams. Upon realizing her priest has a better sex life than she does, she decides to abandon the rules of her religion and is determined to lose her virginity before her impending 25th birthday. The only trouble is...with whom will it be?

Annie Hendy is the writer and star of The Catholic Girl's Guide to Losing Your Virginity. The play first premiered at The Hudson Guild Theatre in Los Angeles January 2006. The Catholic Girl's Guide to Losing Your Virginity next traveled to the 2006 Cincinnati Fringe Festival, where it was chosen as both the Audience and Critic's "Pick of the Fringe" and it was nominated for two Cincinnati Entertainment Awards. Catholic Girl's was picked up for the previously-booked 2006-2007 season at the Tony Award-winning Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park for a run in January 2007 - it was the first time Playhouse producing artistic director, Ed Stern, has booked non-Playhouse productions into his regular season! In January 2008 Catholic Girl's opened at the Pico Playhouse in Los Angeles for an extended twelve week run and sold out performances. Catholic Girl's recently received the California Presenter's 2010-2011 "New Works Tour" award. Catholic Girl's was most recently presented at the Ojai Arts Center in May 2010. Annie currently resides in Los Angeles where she performs and writes feature films.
