*Now $15!* First Ladies and The Big White Lie, a Staged Reading

September 20 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Wednesday, September 20, 2–5 pm

The most famous deceased First Ladies are having a hard time accepting the Trump presidency. But what can they do about it? After all, they’re dead! Disturbing and unprecedented events are unfolding in DC, in Charlottesville, and at the border, and their predictable “existence” is thrown into chaos. They must confront the secrets and deceptions that have hindered America’s march toward a truly democratic society. Find more info at janinesternlieb.com.

Tickets are now being underwritten by a generous benefactor and have been slashed to $15 for both members and guests, which includes the reading, a Q&A with the playwright and actors, and light refreshments at intermission. You will have the option to reserve a Club lunch at registration. Lunch begins at 12:30 pm and costs $30 for members, and $35 for guests.
