The cast and crew behind downtown's Space 55 first held "A Bitch in Time" two years ago. It was cheap (and semi last minute); no sets or costumes were required and actors had little time for rehearsal. The show sold out, and proceeds benefited the theater's future productions.
A year later, the fundraiser returned, and this Friday and Saturday, one of the theater's most sucessful fundraisers includes a lineup of returning performers and a couple of new faces.
Tonight and Saturday night, Ashley Naftule, Charlie Steak, Chris Schnick, Dan Hull, Harmony DeLeon, Jamie Sanderson, Julie Peterson (who contributes to Jackalope Ranch), Liz Warren, Leslie Barton, and Pina will each perform solo pieces that include stand-up comedy, autobiographical pieces, and fiction monologues.
The evening will be a "boys v. girls" format. Tickets are $10 online for tonight and Saturday night at 8. All performances will take place on the Space 55 stage, 636 E. Pierce St. in downtown Phoenix. The show's expected to last about an hour and a half.
