THE PORCINI TEST ran for six weeks in Los Angeles, named a “top ten” show in LA by Stage Raw, and a “must see” by the Examiner. The Porcini Test is an original play, written in the vein of David Rabe’s, Hurly Burly and Tracy Letts’, August Osage County.
The Porcini Test is a female centric play with three lead actresses. These are not mother, girlfriend or wife roles, they are intelligent, messed-up women who know how to rock and roll…“the play is a very entertaining slice-of-life examination, addressing universal truths between men and women.” Broadway World.
I will try to come to the play Sunday, but I forgot that I have a dinner with friends that night. I’ll see if i can move the dinner, but at this point, i think it’s a little late. I’ll let you know.
“What makes this play so wonderful is that all three women really care about each other. Yes they’re imperfect but it’s their flaws that’s makes them so relatable…Don’t miss it.” EXAMINER

“Kat (Nancy Young), teeters on the fine line between a sexually liberated woman and outright promiscuity – all the while delivering a flawless performance.” WILLCALL
