The SCR-commissioned work will run March 6-27, opening March 11 at the Costa Mesa company's stage. David Chambers directs Princess Marjorie.
The new adult comedy with adult themes and language is billed as "a hilarious take on the shared memories of two highly imaginative brothers." The story finds the siblings reminiscing on their teen romances and one object of their affection in particular, "once so innocent and perfect, until she returns for a visit, all grown up."
The cast features Nathan Baesel, Michael Gladis,, Khrystyne Haje and John Vickery.
