A MESSAGE TO OUR MEMBERS
Dear Friends, Members, and Supporters,

The holiday season approaches! For most, this is an opportunity to relax and reboot as the year comes to a close. In that spirit, Works by Women will be on hiatus for the month of December.

However - this doesn't mean that the work for Parity stops!

If you would like us to promote your production during December, please send us all relevant info by Thanksgiving - November 26, 2015.

Thank you for your support!

In Solidarity,
The Works by Women Team

About the Show
Albert's war buddy, Larry Doyle, now dying, has come for a last visit hoping to content himself that he did one good deed: saving Albert's life.  Instead he finds a man who has failed at life, with a disabled child, deceived by his wife and his own beliefs. Albert's attempts to deceive Larry only make the deception more evident, leaving him alone with his own self-delusions.  Written by the Pulitzer- prize winning playwright Frank D. Gilroy.  Who can ultimately save you from yourself?

About the Event
The event will be followed by a talk-back with show director Marcia Haufrecht, producers Jeanette Bonner and Lauren Rayner, publicist Malini Singh McDonald, and moderated by Heidi Russell, founder of International Women Artists' Salon.
Pre-event mixer offering light refreshments begins at 7pm.



We hope you can make it! However, if you cannot, this show runs November 4th-21st and is offering Works By Women members $15 tickets with the code "WBWmember" ... Buy Tickets Here

PROMISING
Written by Terry Berliner
Beckett Theatre on Theatre Row
410 West 42nd Street
NYC

Local politician David Carver's meteoric rise has caught the eye of the heavy political hitters in NYC and beyond. But the burgeoning career of the charismatic campaigner is threatened by a startling accusation. PROMISING is at once a scathingly funny and shocking indictment of our current political climate.
