PENNY PENNIWORTH

Genre: Comedy
Written by Chris Weikel Directed by Mark Finley

The Off-Broadway Hit & New York Times Critic Pick Returns To The Stage For A One Night Only Benefit Performance For Emerging Artists Theatre!

PENNY PENNIWORTH is Charles Dickens' "lost" epic as mounted by a short-staffed theatre troupe with Royal Shakespeare Company aspirations. Set in Victorian England, it tells the story of young Penny Penniworth whose childhood love is driven out of town after nearly killing a wealthy businessman. Soon, Penny finds herself penniless, left alone to make her way through a convoluted maze of strange relationships, anonymous benefactors and ultimate justice.

This 70 minute farce features Christopher Borg, Jamie Heinlein, Lee Kaplan, and Ellen Reilly.

TICKETS $75 Includes post-show mingle with the cast & a special "Penny" cocktail and hors d'oeuvres.

The benefit performance supports Emerging Artists Theatre (EAT) New Work Series. The three-week developmental festival that provides artists of different disciplines the opportunity to present one night of a "work in progress" with audience feedback. Successful Fringe, NYMF, and Off-Broadway shows have been born out of this festival, and Emerging Artists Theatre is excited to present a new round of opportunity to local artists.
