It is July 1977. Son of Sam is on the loose and New York City is in the midst of a brutal heat wave. Sixteen year-old Mary Claire and her best friend Mary Francis start that day sunning themselves on the roof of an Ozone Park row house.

No Spring Chicken
By Ginna Hoben

With Ginna Hoben and Sheffield Chastain

Friday June 15, 2017

Q&A immediately following
Whippoorwill Theatre
North Castle Public Library
Kent Place, Armonk, NY 10504

All she wants is a baby.
“No Spring Chicken” is a refreshing and heartfelt comedy about one 40-year-old’s effort to achieve, survive, and (without medication) complete a healthy pregnancy, to fulfill her life’s wish to have a child. “Hoben’s sense of humor weaves the play’s contrasting elements- hilarity,
raw emotion, graphic detail, darker fears— into a consistent whole.”
Washington Post
