A Comedy by Simon Williams
October 8 to 24, 2021

Leonard Loftus wrote a book, a steamy romance novel to be precise. He enters it, under a pseudonym--Lulabella Latiffa--, in a contest for new female writers. When Lulabella wins first prize, Leonard has a major problem. this hilarious, feel-good comedy follows leonard as he tries to not get caught in his own tangled web. Too bad hos smart-aleck daughter and rascally old father, think it's more fun to sabotage his plans than to help.


Early Bird Special Dates: October 8 & 9
