Charlie’s Waiting, a world premiere by 2017 Parity Commission winner Mêlisa Annis, follows two women the night before their wedding. A pregnant Louise is busy with all the planning while her fiancée Kelly busies herself feeding the goats. Everything is going to plan, that is until Louise is forced to confront questions of trust and intimacy, and she discovers how quickly plans can get derailed.
"...a taut, very funny, and brilliantly played dance of wits and emotions."
- Jon Sobel, Blogcritics
“…demonstrates its young author’s flair for weaving comedy and drama together, as well as a wicked imagination.”
- Leslie R. Herman, Off Off Online
