Snapshots

a dramatic comedy by Cynthia Mercati, will play July 12, 13, 19, 20 at 7 pm and July 21 at 5 pm at the historic Masonic Lodge, 2756 Essex Road, Essex, NY.

"The story of three women from their teens to their middle years, each journeying both together and alone. Interspersed between the scenes are monologues, ranging from the pure comedy of Hollis teaching Bible school from a feminist perspective, to the darkness of Carol and a rape trial, to a bittersweet scene with Sherry and her assorted junk food, as she plots to move to Russia, where they like their women large, and she can stop forcing herself to be what she's not - thin. In the final scene, they're faced with a final decision - go on as they have been, or find their own center."
