by Ramona Baillie and Maria Popoff

This madcap roller-coaster ride pays homage to the screwball comedies of the 30s and 40s. A philandering boss, a scheming new employee and a wacky mail room clerk, to name just a few, all with hidden agendas. Can the unassuming Betty survive the intrigue of the corporate world? Read More…


Join our three playwrights, Ramona Baillie, Maria Popoff and Catherine Frid, as they compare notes on what inspired them, how their scripts evolved, the peaks and valleys of development from draft to draft, how they sought out feedback – and how they coped with the advice, criticism, praise and encouragement.


Take part in a spirited and provocative symposium.  Scholars and experts, with experience and expertise in the issues raised by the play, will exchange their thoughts with each other and with you.
