LEMONADE Presented Online by Equality Productions

EP_logoOn December 13 and/or 20, see the outdoor recording of the talented cast of LEMONADE written by James Prideauxdirected by Ed Cohen, and produced by Equality Productions with assistance from Falcon Theatre.

LEMONADE features a pair of Midwestern housewives who find themselves one afternoon trying to escape the boredom of their lives by selling lemonade on the side of a highway.  Along the way, we learn how much each needs passion and drama in their lives, true or not.  Funny and sad at the same time, LEMONADE reveals how desperately we seek to avoid the mundane and how little people really know what’s beneath the surface in their friends and the people we meet every day.

The talented actresses who volunteered their talents to raise money for Falcon Theatre are:

  • Katey Blood as Mabel
  • Eileen Earnest as Edith

TO RECEIVE THE YOUTUBE LINK for the recording, send a donation directly to Falcon Theatre @ https://falcontheater.net/patron-information/

The suggested donation is $10, but donate what you can. Then email equalityproductionscincy@gmail.com how much you donated so we can total the donations given.

In return, you will receive a link to the recording on the show days. The recording will only be available to view those two days.
