VIRTUAL PREMIER COMING SOON
DIRTY LAUNDRY is a cringe-worthy-yet-charming original solo performance concept. Experience an unexpected story of reclamation as the playwright (Gina Cornejo) unapologetically discloses the irreverent unraveling of her marriage and divorce. Featuring seven autobiographical chapters, this performance aims to unearth gritty topics that are often left buried, and is both an invitation to open dialogue and an offering of solidarity.
