Tony Award winner Trezana Beverley will direct a new comedy by Barbara Sutton Masry that will play a limited engagement at the 411 Space Times Square Arts Center.

Ambition and romance collide when she hooks up with her old college crush who is now the Acting Chair of the Theater Department."

The design team comprises Ken Davis (lighting), Raisy Derzie (scenic), Ali Turns (costume) and Robin Vest (set).
