American Beauty Shop | Some Company

august 25 - september 16

Written by Dana Lynn Formby

It’s hard to pull yourself up by your bootstraps in this economy - Sue should know. It’s harder when you’ve got kids, even whip-smart, talented ones like Judy. Sue has big dreams for both her basement beauty shop and her daughter, who’s anxiously waiting for a letter from MIT that could change her life. Armed with tough love, combative humour and an uncompromising work ethic, Sue is struggling to balance her own livelihood and Judy’s future. 

The follow up to Some Company’s 2016 Broadway World nominee for Best Play Leaves, American Beauty Shop is a heartfelt play about the true cost of dreams by three-time Kilroy Honourable Mention playwright Dana Lynn Formby

Directed by Anna McGrath; Produced by Oleg Pupovac; Set & Costume Design Ellen Stanistreet; Sound Design Ella Griffin; Production Manager Sean Nolan; Graphic Design Tara Clark

With Charmaine Bingwa, Caitlin Burley, Jill McKay Amanda Stephens Lee, Janine Watson
