As part of the Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse’s Monday night special series, a new play by Ryan Spahn, directed by Claudia Weill will be unveiled on Monday, July 18 at 7:30 p.m.

The comedy, Blessed and Highly Favored, stars Debra Monk and Michael Urie. As is custom at these events will be a work in progress as opposed to a finished production. This way audiences get to see the creative process in action as idea turns to performance.

Tickets are $30 and net proceeds benefit the playhouse. The one night specials are sponsored, in part, by the Liman Foundation.
