Brownie Points – A West Coast Premiere
By Janece Shaffer
May 20-June 18, previews May 18 & 19
The girls’ club pledge never promised camping would be easy…for the moms. In the late night mayhem of a backwoods campout a storm rages outside, while a squall builds inside the cabin. Set against tranquil mountains, the close quarters, diverse backgrounds and differing walks of life collide, spurring hilarious but meaningful conversations about race, religion and parenting.
Director Karen Lund’s Notes:
In January 2010 I travelled to Atlanta to see the world premiere of Brownie Points at Theatrical Outfit. Watching the sold-out houses laughing with delight as the characters challenged each other with questions about race, religion and parenting made me know I was in the midst of something special. This story provides a safe place to ask ourselves some of our hardest social questions. I’m thrilled to share it with you.
