from A to B
“The first thing I do in the morning is brush my teeth and sharpen my tongue.”
WINNIPEG FRINGE FESTIVAL 2007
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
