Brownie Points, written 2010, has seen previous productions in Atlanta, Sacramento and Seattle. The production at Lamb’s resident theatre in Coronado will be the play’s Southern California premiere.
The show centers on "five modern-day moms on a campout with their Girl Scout daughters in the pine hills of Georgia when an unexpected storm erupts. With a sharp ear for true conversation and a very funny wit, Schaffer asks which is more powerful – the bond of friendship, the shared experience of motherhood, or the divisiveness of race or religion? Funny, moving and powerful, it is easy to see why this new play has already won awards, and raves from audiences and critics across the country."
Brownie Points is directed by Lamb’s Associate Artistic Director, Deborah Gilmour Smyth, with scenic design by Michael McKeon, costume design by Keith Bonar and lighting design by Nathan Peirson.
The cast features Lamb’s Artistic Ensemble members Cynthia Gerber and Erica Phillips, along with award-winning San Diego actresses Monique Gaffney, Karson St John and Kaja Dunn.
Brownie Points goes into Previews April 13, with Opening Night April 20, running thru May 27.
