The Drunken City at Whitman College

In Nov of 2013, Florence Lebas directed The Drunken City at the Harper Joy Theatre.

In a preview article, Alexandra Schaffer (who played Melissa) said: What struck us most about the cast of “The Drunken City” was the equality of the characters. Not really even in terms of there being three men and three women … but that everyone gets their “moment” in the play … A lot of women are involved in Whitman’s theatre department, so it is nice to come across a play that gives the same number of opportunities to both genders.
