Lipstick by Lane Stanley

December 21, 2019 8:00 pm @ 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 8:00 pm on Friday and Saturday, repeating until December 21, 2019 12:00 am

“Lipstick” – Fridays and Saturdays Dec 6th – Dec 21st with a special preview on Thursday Dec 5th.
Showtimes: 8 PM

Synopsis: Lipstick is a silly, sweet farce with a heart of gold and a drawer full of sex toys. Anna has invited Kelly over for dinner, but is it a date? Or just hanging out? How could Anna know?! Is Kelly even gay?! Kelly wears earrings AND boots! Just in case that wasn’t confusing enough, a cavalcade of visitors crashes their evening – an ex-girlfriend, a nebby bestie, a handyman, a mom, and a parade of potential suitors. Hijinks, of course, ensue, in this play-shaped love letter to the queer community.
