Nice Girl

1 Male, 3 Female

Melissa Ross Price: $9.99

This tender drama tells a simple story that makes you ponder the age-old dilemma about women having it all

In suburban Massachusetts in 1984, thirty-seven-year-old Josephine Rosen has a dead-end job, still lives with her mother, and has settled into the uncomfortable comfort of an unintended spinsterhood

But when a chance flirtation with an old classmate and a new friendship at work give her hope for the possibility of change, she dusts off the Jane Fonda tapes and begins to take tentative steps towards a new life

A play about the tragedy and joy of figuring out who you are and letting go of who you were supposed to be

REVIEWS

Nice Girl presents a slice of middle-class life with unpatronizing honesty and simplicity … And while the final image is a hopeful one, Ms Ross wisely avoids the kind of pat or sentimental ending that would spoil the play’s mood of ambivalence, not to mention its truthfulness” ~ NY Times

“ ... this gentle, old-fashioned heart-tugger casts an insistent spell” ~ NY Daily News

“Absorbing … Josephine is sympathetic but not maudlin, and Ross is refreshingly unhurried in depicting her plight” ~Time Out NY
