Mill Valley, California

With the very opening lines, we learn the basic plot of this anything-but-predictable new play set in 1920s Chicago: the three Fail sisters – Nelly, Jenny June and Gerty – have very little time left. But before it’s curtains for each young woman, she finds love and happiness in this quirky, macabre fantasia that examines the truism: “’Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” Megan Smith will play the eldest of the three sisters, Gerty. Set to live music, this production will feature five actors performing guitar, piano, stand-up bass, violin, mandolin, flute, French horn, and more. BUY TICKETS NOW
