There will be NO late seating for this production.
A wicked dark comedy of friendship, obsession and Southern sensibilities. Accidents seem to happen in the little diner off the interstate where three friends work together and keep a sinister secret. When one of them hides her own terrible secret from the others, everything begins to unravel. Presented as a one-act through our Spotlight Series: New Play Readings in 2009, we are thrilled to present the new full-length version from this Philadelphia Playwright.
"All the smokiness of a Southern Gothic drama."
-- Backstage NY
"Suspenseful and provocative...a refreshing new story admirably written...What makes this play different than a mundane portrait of the modern South is its mythic quality. the terrible girls forces us to reflect on the duality of human nature and witness how deceit, desire, and obsession can lead to transgression."
