Directed by David Shane, the production stars Courtney Alana Ward (School for Husbands, MMF), Michael Hull (Rescue Rue, Vestment of the Gods), Chad Bradford and Catie Humphreys.

Here is how Mare in the Men's Room is billed: "When her marriage starts to crumble, Brigette's homecoming leads her from a quiet life in the suburbs to the vivacious world of drag. She breaks the mold by performing as a new kind of drag king — a man that performs as a woman — and skyrockets into the limelight. As her fame rises, her marriage falls farther away and suddenly the life she once knew no longer exists."

The production follows Goldfish Memory Productions' MMF, which played to sold-out houses at the recent NY International Fringe Festival.

Mare in the Men's Room is the first production to represent Florida State University as part of The Araca Project and was previously presented as a reading at the E. 13th Street Theatre (home of Classic Stage Company).

The creative team also includes Shelley Barish (scenic design), Max Bowman (lighting design), Christopher Metzger (costume design), Dan Spitaliere (sound design) and Ashley Squires (stage management).

The American Theatre of Actors - Chernuchin Theatre is located at 314 W. 54th Street. For more information and tickets, visit MareInTheMensRoom.com.
