A delightfully witty play about two childhood best friends who are now dealing with success and love on their own terms. Both well-known authors; one a critical darling and the other a prolific bestseller. No nonsense gal Katharine “Kit” Markham, is currently working on her latest novel and carrying on a steamy love affair with a younger man. While the other; a meddling divorcee, Mildred Drake is refusing to loosen her overbearing claws on her free-spirited daughter Deirdre and struggles with a deep hidden jealously of Kit.
Once a 1943 film by the same name with stars Bette Davis, Miriam Hopkins and Gig Young; WCP brings you another Hollywood Classic that tackles the boundaries of friendship and true meaning behind the word “frenemy”.

A few years ago, I met up with two of the founders of Modjeska Playhouse, Christopher Sullivan and Joshua Stecker.

The Wayward Artist Present : Corpus Christi by Terrence McNally @ GRAND CENTRAL ARTS CENTER November 9 – November 18
Blasphemy! Sacrilege! Heresy! Terrence McNally’s passion play recounts the birth, death, and resurrection of a young gay man living in Corpus Christi, Texas, scandalizing communities near and far when it first premiered in 1998. Experience the powerful story of Joshua who, different from other boys because of his homosexuality, grows up in isolation and torment. Fleeing his home, he gathers a group of disciples who are drawn to his radical message of love and tolerance. Despite his message of equality, he will suffer the same fate as Jesus who also sought to change a wayward community—its arrogance, its ignorance, and its complacency. Taken from the website.
