Awesome Theatre wants YOU to audition for its Summer Production of COFFEE LADY, a new comedy by Bridgette Dutta Portman and Directed by Nikki Meñez!
Joanne hates her job at McCarby's: minimum wage, irritating customers, an overbearing boss, and a geeky coworker. When Jo's sister, Char, comes up with a scheme to spill hot coffee on herself and sue McCarby's, Jo goes along with it. Can they pull it off, or is it too tall an order? Will someone spill the beans? How many coffee puns can we cram into this synopsis? And why is a mysterious old woman following Jo? Inspired by the 1992 McDonald's hot coffee lawsuit, Coffee Lady is a comedy about corporate greed, individual responsibility, sibling rivalry, the dangers of denial, and the power of truth.
