New Stage Play Looks at Gender Politics in the Workplace


The new play is called Bearded Ladies, written by Woods Hole resident P.K. Simonds, a long-time television writer.  The play will premiere as a stage reading Sunday July 22 in Falmouth, presented by the Cape Cod Theater Project.

WCAI's Dan Tritle talked with the playwright about the project, and the ideas behind it.
