Celebrate National Give OUT Day June 30 and celebrate Gay Pride with Proud Mary Theatre Company and our Brand Spanking New Play Series with the world premiere of A Straightforward Scenario, a play in one act by Hope Phillips,
In this hilarious scenario, GenZers debate politics and try to balance their attempts to be PC with their thirst-quenching desire for that ever-so-delicately-breaded breast in a foil pouch.
This premiere stars Zachary Urban (THE BOYS IN THE BAND), Sun Jane Schwalm (LESBIAN VAMPIRES OF SODOM), Dexter Simmons (SOUTHERN BAPTIST SISSIES, THE KISS) and Lily Webb making her Proud Mary Theatre debut.\
Hope Phillips is a rising senior at USC Upstate, where she majors in theatre performance and minors in womens’ and gender studies. She enjoys working on both the technical and performance sides of the theatre world. Hilights from her time at USC Upstate include playing Honey in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Gertie in Fuddy Meers, Emma in Betrayal (Irene Ryan Award Nomination), and, most recently, Laura / Margie in Buried Over Lewis. Her technical highlights are assistant directing and stage managing for (Anon)ymous (Irene Ryan Award Nomination), stage managing Last Night and the Night Before, and directing Mary-Kate Olsen is in Love as part of the Advanced Directing One-Acts. She is ecstatic to be collaborating with Proud Mary for the first time for this reading!
