Petrone Productions Presents:
BONNIE’S FUTURE SISTERS
Petrone Productions is proud to present the East Coast premiere of BONNIE’S FUTURE SISTERS, an all-female comedy about one bride’s attempt to host her own engagement party. Written and directed by Meghan Gambling, whose writing LA Weekly calls “humorous and poignant… a spot on creation,” and produced by Emmy-nominated Jeanne Petrone-Arzubiaga, Bonnie’s Future Sisters marks Gambling’s 4th production at the New York International Fringe Festival.
Bonnie, a human resources professional, has had overnight success with her motivational book “Keep Your Glasses On: A Girl’s Guide to Success in the Workplace.” Her older sister Corey, a Stanford-educated lesbian who fled her hometown the moment she got into college, has been laboring over a memoir for nearly a decade. When Bonnie invites Corey to her engagement party, Corey heads to North Carolina to try to rekindle her friendship with her younger sister—only to find that Bonnie appears more excited about her future sisters-to-be, Kayleigh and Larissa, than Corey. Despite Bonnie’s best and meticulously planned efforts, her party threatens to be a total bust when all of a sudden one of the sisters goes missing.
Bonnie’s Future Sisters won The Producers Award at the 2014 Hollywood Fringe Festival where it was selected for extension as part of The Encore Series. The cast features Sascha Alexander (Masters of Sex, Dating Daisy, Bones), Kristen Rozanski (Comedy Bang! Bang!, Ugly Betty, Law & Order SVU), Sarah Greyson (Road Rules, The Challenge: The Gauntlet, The Colorado Shakespeare Festival, Funny or Die) and Emily Jordan (Marvin Marvin, Nike, Face2Face). Producer Petrone-Arzubiaga is known for her work on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Girls Behaving Badly, and Talkshow with Spike Feresten.
Gambling is a producer, screenwriter and published playwright. Three of her plays have been presented by FringeNYC, including The Kitchen Sink, which went on to be adapted into the film Cheesecake Casserole and is available on Netflix and Amazon.
Current projects of Gambling’s include By The Clock, a mini series on the life of Mary Pickford for Hourglass Artists, Inc., and One, Mississippi a screenplay about the last abortion clinic in Mississippi for 4th Wall Entertainment. Gambling is a member of The Producers Guild and The Dramatists Guild. Gambling recently finished the feature screenplay of Bonnie’s Future Sisters and working to secure investors for the project.
