About The Show
Playwright, Mark Dunn, a local Santa Fean and published playwright, has written this successful “mostly female southern comedy” with a strong ensemble dynamic. Think Steel Magnolias meets Survivor! It is an intrinsically funny yet serious play about relationships and trust. The Glitter Girls are “friends” who have met for 16 years and who are mostly supported by their grand dame, the owner of the local snood factory. She recently has sold it and wants to share some of the money with her “Girls” but wants to challenge them first to see who is most deserving. Secrets revealed, and maybe a few cocktails are thrown into the hilarity.
