"Lingerie Shop" Staged Reading May 11

Lingerie Shop is a male fantasy of life in a sexy lingerie shop. Everything is hot and steamy until one of the actresses curses the playwright and quits the play in the middle of a scene. What follows is a Pirandello-styled farce that deconstructs theatre and feminism.

Robert Trussell with the Kansas City Star called the play "a short, succinct bit of satire that doesn’t wear out its welcome. It’s a clever idea executed with quick, broad strokes."

Lingerie Shop was first produced at the Kansas City Fringe Festival in 2009. Tara Varney, who directed the original Fringe production, will direct the reading. Also returning from the original production is Marcie Ramirez, Amy Hurrelbrink, and Kelli Morford. They will be joined by Melody Butler and Stefanie Wienecke. Unfortunately, there will be no lingerie in this staged reading (at least, none that is visible).

May 11 at the Writer's Place, 3607 Pennsylvania. Doors open at 7 p.m. The approximately 45-minute reading begins at 7:30, followed by a talkback with the playwright, director, and cast.
