Lawfully Wedded & Gorgeous Hussy (in Repertory)
"I tip my hat to Morgan Ludlow, the artistic director of Wily West Productions whose beguiling new two-character play [GORGEOUS HUSSY] turns the celebrity interview upside down and inside out with dramatic deftness and a rare depth of perception."
--GEORGE HEYMONT, HUFFINGTON POST
"LAWFULLY WEDDED offers a pleasant night at the theatre overall, with some surprisingly effective moments, excellent writing and fine acting."
--CHARLES KRUGER, THEATRESTORM
"It was a wonderful way to explore the lesser known Joan Crawford, the woman behind the public figure, the possible motivations behind her sometimes questionable parenting skills and behavior...this was executed with humor as well as compassion, bringing tears to my eyes at times, between the laughter."
"The opening night audience [of LAWFULLY WEDDED] was treated to a vibrant, funny, touching and important evening of theatre! The cast deftly handles the well crafted scripts. The set and lighting, simple and effective. Kudos to director, cast, production team and authors. Go see this show! Wily West is one to watch!!!"
Join us this summer for two plays that promise to be entertaining in the best of all possible ways!
LAWFULLY WEDDED is a timely collage of scenes and stories that reveal the American struggle for marriage equality. The show is written by three San Francisco playwrights: Morgan Ludlow, Kirk Shimano, & Alina Trowbridge. When Bill and Jason decide to get married, they confront all the familiar challenges any newlywed couple must face as they plan a wedding, meet their in-laws, buy a house, mix with the neighbors, have a child and deal with the calamity of a major illness. LAWFULLY WEDDED is at times dramatic, touching, hilarious and will hopefully give you something to talk about as the Supreme Court makes a ruling on two important cases.
The play is directed by Wesley Cayabyab with an outstanding ensemble cast of Philip Goleman, Jason Jeremy, Kat Kneisel, Brian Martin, Scott Ragle, Farah Sanders, Janice Wright, & Heidi Wolff.
It will run July 25, 27 | Aug 2, 8, 10, 17 @8:00pm.
