An invite-only industry reading of Lawryn LaCroix and Andi Villa Stover's new play Gummies will be held May 20 at 6 PM at Open Jar Studios.
The work follows a group of multi-racial sisters-in-laws in New Jersey and is told though a series of vignettes spurring from a drunken night where they accidentally eat an entire roll of THC gummy tape. The play is described as a comedy and explores the often unsaid experiences of motherhood.
The reading will star Ebony Marshall Oliver (Chicken & Biscuits) as Cheryl, SAG winner Alysia Reiner (Orange is the New Black) as Monica, Samantha Morales as Paula, Sanda Bauleo as Nancy, and Sophia Lucia as Cathy. Casting is by Victor Vasquez.
The work is in development with The Shubert Organization’s Artistic Circle.
