Pacific Playwrights Festival

At the beginning of the 20th century, tattooed lady Picky is commissioned by Lady Elizabeth Arterton to do some custom inking. It quickly becomes more than a transaction as desperation, regret and art collide in a world where a woman’s options are corseted.

A $​70 package to see all five readings is available online, or by calling the Box Office at (714) 708-5555. This package is available to SCR Super Subscribers for $60—only by phone.

Theatre professionals: please purchase your tickets here or contact Andrew Knight (andrew@scr.org) at (714) 708-5062 for more information.
