The industrious members of the Budapest Women's Club come together for an annual tradition: the crafting of the holiday parade float. But under the surface of this pleasant gathering, the women find themselves grappling with sexuality, betrayal, and their own hard and fast notions of right and wrong.

In this ode to the complicated undercurrents of Midwestern morality, you'll meet Marty, Luce, Char, Arletta, and Doodee -- five women who face the tests life presents to them with laughter and love.

"a rare and wonderful accomplishment....great characters, engaging script, generous humor and compelling conflict that leaves us complete in the stories presented without the need to spoon-feed us tidy resolutions."– Chicago Stage Review

Admission is $3.00 for members of the Caltech Women's Club; $4.00 for all others. Light refreshments will be served after the reading.

To dine at the Athenaeum beforehand, call (626) 395-8204 for reservations. Plan to be seated by 5:30. You are welcome to join the Playreaders table.
