GOOD ENOUGH to Receive Workshop Production with TMB
TMB presents the workshop production of a world premiere play, GOOD ENOUGH, written and performed by Ted McGrath and directed by James Barbour. GOOD ENOUGH will open on Friday, July 26 and perform through Sunday, August 25 at the Lounge Theatre, 6201 Santa Monica Blvd. in Hollywood.
GOOD ENOUGH is the true journey of world renown author and story teller Ted McGrath. Playing 15 characters, McGrath takes us on an emotional roller coaster ride through addiction as he sabotages his family, his career and ultimately his life in the attempt to answer one question burning inside him his entire life: AM I GOOD ENOUGH? Now, having reclaimed his life and at the pinnacle of success, McGrath's play asks each of us that same question: Are you "Good Enough?"
