http://photos1.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/9/2/4/c/event_215857452.jpegIn honor of the 10th Anniversary Season of Pittsburgh Playwright's Theatre Company (PPTCO), we're happy to announce a wonderful special offer where patrons can receive a free ticket for the upcoming PPTCO production of the August Wilson classic "Radio Golf" on June 5 which also includes a wine & cheese reception.

Because the PPTCO 10th Anniversary Season also includes the wonderful plays "Straightening Combs" (March 9-31) and "Ma Noah" (April 20 – May[masked]) ... here is the special offer.

Purchase tickets by March 31st for both "Straightening Combs" and "Ma Noah" and you will automatically receive a free ticket to a special performance of "Radio Golf" on Wednesday June 5th which also includes a wine and cheese reception in celebration of our tenth season showcasing the talents of Pittsburgh playwrights and theatre artists.

To help facilitate this special offer, we've added two Meetup performance dates for "Straightening Combs" on March 24 and March 29 ... plus we'll be announcing some Meetup performance dates for "Ma Noah" although people will be able to switch tickets and/or buy their own tickets for other dates not necessarily connected with a Meetup.

The offer is simply a free ticket for "Radio Golf" with pre-show wine & cheese reception on June 5 as long as you purchase a ticket for both "Straightening Combs" and "Ma Noah" by March 31.

These are three wonderful plays you don't want to miss!! And to make it easier, you even get one of them for free along with a pre-show wine/cheese reception to help celebrate the 10th Anniversary Season of Pittsburgh Playwright's Theatre Company.

About "Radio Golf"
"Radio Golf" is the last play in August Wilson's 10-play Pittsburgh Century cycle which chronicles the African-American experience in the 20th century, decade by decade. The 1990's-set play involves Harmond Wilks, an Ivy-League educated real estate developer who aspires to redevelop the Hill District and become the first Black mayor of Pittsburgh. There is only one thing standing in his way: 1839 Wylie Avenue. The past confronts the future in the present as Wilkes learns the house on Wylie is much more than an obstacle to progress.

About "Ma Noah"
The script for "Ma Noah" was the recipient of the 2004 Theodore Ward prize from Columbia College, Chicago. This award winning drama blends humor and hard-hitting truth in the heart of the family unit. Rebecca Pratt, a single mother of four, struggles to keep her family intact despite the social ills of drugs, pregnancy and unemployment. She must draw upon all her reserves of hope and courage in her fight to save her children’s souls.

About "Straightening Combs" (or see scheduled Meetup for March 24 or March 29
Playwright/actor Kim El shares a story of the repercussions of low self-esteem and overcoming depression in urban America in her solo performance, "Straightening Combs". Her spoken word poetry, songs, and short vignettes in six different personas take the audience on an intimate life journey seen through the eyes of an African-American female coming of age.
