Men Seldom Make Passes at Girls Who Wear Glasses

Dorothy Parker
from A to B

“The first thing I do in the morning is brush my teeth and sharpen my tongue.”


From the producers of such festival hits, Arcadia, The Hairy Ape, Jack & Jill, and The Girlhood of Shakespeare’s Heroines; Theatre Incarnate brings you Men Seldom Make Passes at Girls Who Wear Glasses by Dorothy Parker, the wittiest woman of the 1920’s. A participant of the infamous Algonquin round table, Dorothy Parker’s comedy is brilliant, unrelenting, and fiercely funny.

Brenda McLean is "delightful" and "shares Parker's distinctive droll drawl in flapper-esque beads and heels"
Barb Stewart, Uptown Magazine
"Top 10 Winnipeg Theatre 2006."

Known for her keen wit and cutting observation of human nature, Dorothy Parker’s storytelling is filled with sharp insight into people, and their strange fits of passion, that have continued to make her so popular. A physicalized adaptation of Dorothy Parker comedic stories, Men Seldom Make Passes at Girls Who Wear Glasses features characterizations by Brenda McLean under the direction of Christopher Sobczak.

Running Time: 60 minutes, suitable for mature audiences.
Venue capacity limited to 42 seats.
Please note: the venue is not wheelchair accessible.
