CAPITAL FRINGE PRESENTS

50 WAYS TO DATE YOUR AUBREY

A polyamorous cis-bi pragmatist actor gave an anti-romantic cis-het realist playwright creative license to tell a (mostly) real life story about looking for love in ALL the places. What resulted is an incomplete guide to dating your Aubrey.

Premiers in the 2018 Capital Fringe Festival
Written by Danny Rovin (Stone Tape Party)
Directed by Lynn Sharp Spears
Starring Aubri O'Connor
Artistic support from Charles Lasky, Danny Rovin, and Moriah Whiteman

BWW Review: Nu Sass Presents Amusing Satire THE UGLY ONE

by Barbara Johnson Nov. 19, 2017
