A tale of arts, crafts, convicts, and drycleaning, SCRAPBOOK JUNKIES is the world premiere production of a quirky, original comedy chronicling the stories of five women, each struggling to turn a sticky page in the scrapbook of their lives.
Playwrights Taylor Ashbrook, Amy Benedict, and Elizabeth Dement cleverly weave these stories together... satisfying and sweetly entertaining, with surprisingly rich characters... [Barbara] Murray glows onstage with warm energy and humor. [D.J.] Harner paints her character in restrained hysteria, [Christine] Zirbel in obsessed intensity.  [Alexandra] Courtois is pretty, dewy, real... Additional delights are the set design by Jeff G. Rack, lighting by John Dickey, and an original song by Dan Conroy that opens Act Two.  But best may be the multigenerational nature of both the casting and the storyline. -- Dany Margolies, BackStage West

These aren't your typical biddies...the audience eventually starts rooting for the gals to get their lives together and make some new memories worth preserving." -- Amy Nicholson, LA Weekly
