As the next entry in its Off The Page series of free monthly play readings, Sierra Madre Playhouse will present the comedy Miss Lulu Bett, the first play written by a woman to win the Pulitzer Prize, in 1921. . In this rarely seen play, Miss Lulu Bett is a spinster of thirty-three who does all the work for her sister's demanding family. When her brother-in-law's brother arrives for a visit, the two are accidentally married in a ceremony that is intended as a joke but turns out to be valid. At once sentimental and sharply satirical, this drawing-room comedy about the uncertain emancipation of lonely Miss Lulu makes for a very funny evening, without scanting the feminist underpinning. Elina De Santos directs the play by Zona Gale.
