Shut the Front Door

Jackie and Lori are determined to help you find closure. Bring your unfinished business or problem to solve and let them “help” you come to terms with your choices in life and show you how it all ends. This isn’t comedy. This is therapy. Terrible therapy.

Lori Bedell, Jackie Gianico
State College, Pa.


Shut the Front Door will perform in the 6:00 p.m. block at the HCC Studio Theatre on Saturday, August 10.
