Unwanted Laughter, a play by Tony Award nominated playwright Marty Martin will be showing at the Philanthropy Theatre part of the Plaza Theatre Performing Arts Centre on Sept, 11-12, 2015.

The Jewel Box Series will kick off its second season with Unwanted Laughter, the play is described as:

"Unwanted Laughter takes place in the summer of 1956 when the historic production of Tennessee Williams’ classic drama A Streetcar Named Desire starring the irrepressible Tallulah Bankhead is on the rocks. In desperation, a special rehearsal has been called for the hard-drinking, savagely competitive pair to work out the problems. Unfortunately, it isn’t faring any better, as together; these bitingly hilarious old friends face the brutality of aging after a lifetime of excess in what could prove to be their last bid for triumph."
