Triplet sisters are left in the forest by their woodcutter father…
Play Number TwO in our '18-19 Season for SCAMPS.
Runs Nov 10 - 25, 2018
In this award-winning tale triplet sisters are left in the forest by their woodcutter father.
From this fairytale beginning, three resolutions are made – one sister will walk one way, one the other, and the third will stay right where she is.
Twenty years later, having circumnavigated the globe, and fought vikings, and crossed oceans, and achieved greatness, the three meet again, as women.

Send a family to see This Girl Laughs...!
At the S&S we are dedicated to engaging audiences that may lack opportunity to experience the impact of theater on our lives. We carefully select our content while fostering a community of artists who can create high-quality theater that immerses and connects with new audiences.
To that end, we can use your help, as we can’t do it through ticket sales alone. Our intimate space isn’t large enough to support our quality of production while keeping ticket prices accessible. We rely on supporters like you to make our outreach to new audiences possible.
Please take this opportunity to support the production of This Girl Laughs... and gift a ticket to a family who otherwise may not be able to attend the production!
Special thanks for our Field Trip Sponsors, Act One and The Judith Triestman Fund held at the Community Foundation of Southern Arizona.
