Santa Monica Rep brings their popular play reading series back to The Edye for a second year. Now in their seventh year of presenting play readings to the community, SM Rep Reads provides audiences an opportunity to engage in a direct and on-going conversation about relevant and enduring themes.
After grad school, Catherine and Gwen chose polar opposite paths. Catherine built a career as a rock star academic, while Gwen built a home with her husband and children. Decades later, unfulfilled in polar opposite ways, each woman covets the other's life, commencing a dangerous game of musical chairs -- the prize being Gwen's husband. With searing insight and trademark wit, this comedy is an unflinching look at gender politics in the wake of 20th century feminist ideals.
Santa Monica Rep Reads made possible in part by generous gifts from James & Laura Maslon, and the Attias Family Foundation.
