SUBSCRIBER SHOW #1 – COUPLES by Sean Grennan

Non-Subscriber Access coming soon.

WHAT ELSE?

You’ll enjoy at least three other theatrical events this year. The world is changing so quickly that we don’t want to announce a show then switch it up on you, but here are a few things we’re working on that may come your way:

· It’s a Wonderful (Western Springs) Life! - an original Christmas spoof for the holidays

· TWS Story Slam - original stories a la The Moth Radio Hour

· Pygmalion in the Park - a glorious comedy in the great outdoors

Subscribers will also receive exciting TWS Connections events like The Gatsby Talkback Zoom, The Isolation Monologues, and more to keep us connected while we’re apart.
