See a Play – Staged reading with Script-in-hand of emerging women playwrights by 3Girls Theatre Company
Chantilly Lace by Robin Bradford, a playwright, screenwriter, and film producer.
About the play:
Dolly and Tilly were big stars back in the day, with their hit television series, Chantilly Lace. But work dried up after Dolly, desperate for cash to pay off her ex’s gambling debts, starred in an adult film. When a major studio comes calling with an offer to remake the show as a film, a miraculous second chance could make all the difference. Is holding onto a grudge more important than restarting not only their flagging careers but more significantly, their lives?
