MBL Productions presents an evening of six short plays from playwright Jennifer Jasper. More…
A boxed-set of six quirky stories nestled into one evening. Seven words map the course of a young couple’s life. A young woman is on a perpetual quest to move forward with the help of her butler. A mother discovers parenting is an obstacle course in the modern age. Three generations of women find a common voice. Chloe and Essie remember. Passengers await their final destination. 'Pressing Matters' wastes no words as Jasper weaves tales in her own humorous and heartfelt storytelling style.
