    by  • March 24, 2019

    Nice GirlNice Girl by Melissa Ross
    Directed by Debra Kent
    Production Dates: April 19 – May 5, 2019

    In suburban Massachusetts in the mid-1980’s, thirty-something-year-old Josephine Rosen has a dead-end job as a secretary and still lives at home with her hypochondriac mother. She started college but never finished, and has settled into a life that doesn’t offer much hope for the future. But when a new friendship at work and a chance flirtation with an old classmate give her hope for the possibility of change, she dusts off the Jane Fonda tapes and begins to take tentative steps towards a new life. This is a play about the tragedy and joy of figuring out who you are and letting go of who you were supposed to be.
