Six Corners Entertainment Presents Mommy, Are We Poor?

Chelsea is a widowed single mom with two jobs, two kids, too many bills, with Christmas approaching, and no money for presents. Her boss offers to help, but it's not the kind of help she had in mind. Can this struggling family get out of a 100-foot hole with a 50-foot ladder?

Playwright Richard Ravosa’s world premiere is directed by Greg Allen, Professor of Theatre, Northeastern University, presented by Six Corners Entertainment, in association with David Bertolino Productions, North Hollywood, California.

Starring Elliot Norton Award Nominee, Lily Kaufman; Bill Mootos (AEA) Little Women 2019; Rena Baskin (AEA); Ivy Jackson; Alyssa Butterfield; and Jacob Moheban.

This performance includes profanity and adult situations, and is intended for teen and adult audiences.

At 6pm on August 6, there will be a fundraising reception held at the theater for the Massachusetts Debt Relief Foundation, a local nonprofit that provides pro bono legal representation to low income residents of our community. Your support will help people like Chelsea, the lead character in the play, whose role was inspired by actual events. Tickets are $75, and include a catered reception, cash bar, entertainment, as well as admission to that evening's performance. 

The performance on Wednesday, August 17 is Pay-What-You-Can, so that anyone who wants to see this show can do so without a cost barrier.

A limited number of free tickets will also be available at the door (on a first-come first-served basis, subject to availability) on August 17.
