Get in the Ring for Round TWO of Guts and Glory! ??

Squeaky Bicycle Productions’ Velodrome Company presents our annual event: All Guts and Some Glory! Join us for this pay-what-you-will event at Theater for the New City on January 8th at 7pm. It’s a battle of wits that pits playwright against playwright, actor against actor, and has been known to make enemies out of friends (people get real serious about their bar tabs). This incredible competition includes six short scenes written by some very talented playwrights. The best part of this battle royale, is that you get to judge who wins all the glory!
