Preview of "Skin Deep" Tonight @ Outwrite

Larry Corse presents a preview of the new award-winning play Skin Deep by Rich Orloff tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Outwrite Books and Coffee House, 991 Piedmont Ave. 

The comedy, directed by Larry Corse, is about a straight couple from Ohio who inherits a Key West resort from the husband's estranged, gay brother. The Godiva Inn is a clothing-optional resort, and when the Ohio couple, George and Liz, arrive to decide whether to keep it or sell it, they meet the people keeping the place running: Clark, the gay hotel clerk who has seen everything and wishes he had taken pictures; and Jane, the lesbian handyman, who made the mistake of marrying a man she thought she loved, but really only loved his tool belt. Quickly divorced, she now wears the tool belt. In this delicious farce, the world for George and Liz gets turned upside down.

Out of 150 submissions from eleven nations, Rich Orloff won the $1,000 Larry Corse Prize for Playwrighting with his entry, Skin Deep. The play will also be performed Wednesday - Saturday, Oct. 15-18, 7:00 p.m., as part of the Atlanta Queer Literary Festival at First Existentialist Congregation, 470 Candler Park Dr.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased by visiting Tickets also available at Outwright Bookstore and Charis Books.
