The Laugh Track

Dates: Sept 11-Oct 4, 2020
Run Time: TBA
Location: The Allen Theatre

Wendy MacLeod’s world premiere comedy, The Laugh Track, takes us behind the scenes of I Love Lucy. Based on the real-life experiences of Hollywood’s first female TV writer, Madelyn Pugh, this play shines light on the inner-workings of America’s beloved sitcom and the woman who punched up the jokes, fought for her career, and paved the way for women in the writers room. Fast-paced and full of wit, The Laugh Track brings familiar characters to life, while proving that comedy is not a man’s job.
