New Plays Festival: sorry sorry okay sorry

Clementine is desperately trying to do the right thing. Clancy is desperately trying to make it through another day as her life falls apart. David is desperately trying to win the Phoenix Division of the World Mind of a Warrior Conference, a celebration of Skill, Artistry, Dedication, and Grit for all those who practice The Way. A play about the funny things that happen in our saddest moments, the sad things that happen in our happiest moments, and also, about competitive meditation.

Friday, April 12 @ 3:30 pm
