The comedy Vanities by Jack Heifner opens in the San Pedro Playhouse Cellar Theater on February 4 with weekend performance through March 6. Directed by Laurie Dietrich, the cast includes Heather Kelly, Rainya Mosher and Emily Spicer, all popular leading ladies.
In the early 1960’s, Joanne, Kathy and Mary are vivacious cheerleaders. Five years later, in their college sorority house, they confront their futures with nervous jauntiness. When they reunite briefly in New York in 1974, their lives have diverged and old-time banter rings false. This snapshot-sharp chronicle of the lives of three small town Texas girls is both a bittersweet comedy and a glimpse of the way many of us grew up. Jack Heifner's play captures the spirit of a bygone era as well as the eternal complexities of friendship.
Heifner is the author of more than 25 plays, 17 in publication. He is best known for his play Vanities, which ran for five years in New York becoming one of the longest running plays in off Broadway history. He is also the author of Comfort and Joy; Natural Disasters; Heartbreak; Bargains; Running on Empty; Jumping for Joy; Boy's Play; Home Fires; The Lemon Cookie; Patio / Porches; and other plays produced in New York, Los Angeles and theatres around the country.
