STRING OF PEARLS by Michele Lowe
A play about all the women we know. 4 actresses – 27 roles
The Group Rep presents Michele Lowe's STRING OF PEARLS directed by Sherry Netherland, produced by Gina Yates, featuring Michele Bernath, Katelyn Ann Clark, Lareen Faye, and Sean Kathryn O'Connor, July 31 through September 5 at the Lonny Chapman Theatre, 10900 Burbank Boulevard, in the NoHo Arts District of North Hollywood 91601.
Michele Lowe's radiant play explores the possibilities that open up in the lives of an array of women as they come into contact with a certain strand of pearls. While the pearls are stolen, bought, bestowed, unstrung and nearly lost, four actresses play 27 characters in this deeply moving drama that is as fresh as it is funny. Spanning 35 years, the pearls touch the lives of mothers and daughters, sisters and friends, even husbands and wives as they weave a deeply affecting story of love and loss.
“Highly satisfying hilarious blend of sex, satire, poignance, and absurdism.” - New York Times
"String of Pearls is a funny and moving tale of a fated necklace that changes the lives of over two dozen characters. The stories and characters, intricately threaded together, create a gently comic, wonderfully magical puzzle." - TheatreChannel.com
