Full House in the Falls

East Falls brought the love to the first-ever Philly Theatre Week! 

Coffee, pastries, and original local drama! Sold-out crowds for Play Appetizers, savory short plays at Vault + Vine’s lovely upstairs venue.

Play Appetizers featured three short plays, written by Philadelphia-area playwrights and performed by some of Philly’s finest actors. East Falls resident Kathy Anderson’s play, SISSY, was performed by Cathy Simpson and Darcel Caldwell and directed by Brey Ann Barrett, below.
