Jessica Harika Returns Upstairs @ The Stonewall Inn To Direct HONEY FITZ
Jessica Harika returns to direct for the fifth public reading of Honey Fitz, the new full length drama by up-and-coming playwright Justin McDevitt.
Monday February 3, 2020
Upstairs @ The Stonewall Inn
53 Christopher St.
HONEY FITZ is closing and only a handful of its remaining customers have even bothered to say goodbye: Bill and Charlene, divorced but reunited to settle family business; Patrick and Ginny, having one last nightcap before they marry in the morning; and Mick, the sardonic bartender with his own secrets kept tight in his pockets. Tomorrow, the demolition begins, but they find it impossible to leave the bar, and each other.
Starring: Jackie McKenna, Mark Lanham, Amy Hayes, Mason Thomas Hensley, and Cheryl Mullings
