Lenore Skomal's New Play THE EXES Takes the Stage For Industry Reading
Lenore Skomal's new play The Exes takes the stage this December for a special industry reading prior to its Off Broadway run in spring of 2018.
Self-made billionaire Richard and his best friend Dick were both married to the same woman: strong willed Mavis. When she drops in uninvited on Christmas Eve--the day of Richard's daughter's wedding--all hell breaks loose. Reminiscent of The Philadelphia Story, this bromantic comedy of love and breakups is alternately irreverent, ridiculous and tender-reminding audiences why marriage and divorce make for strange bedfellows.

WHAT: A special staged reading
WHEN: Friday, Dec. 8 at 3:00 p.m.
WHERE: Matthew Corozine Studio Theatre, 357 W 36th St #202, NYC

"I believe laughter is a close second to love as a healing power. It's a panacea for all that ails this planet, says playwright Lenore Skomal. "Dick Wright, one of my characters, says it best when his ex-wife Mavis says to him, "I see you still think you're funny." "Oh, but I am funny," he counters. "If I weren't, I'd go insane."
