THE ACCIDENTAL PUNDETTE
Written and Performed by NANCY GILES
I told a conservative mouthpiece to 'shut her mouth' on a cable news show. Why was I even there? And what happened afterwards? The strange, true story that threw an actress and comedy writer smack dab in the middle of race, politics, nasty emails, and feeling like Ann B. Davis in the center box of The Brady Bunch.
The running time of Summer Shorts 2012, Series A is 2 hours including an intermission.

A comic, contemporary musical spin on the classic children's tale, The Three Little Pigs, focusing on every New Yorker's twin passions: love and real estate. When the three Bacon Sisters are kicked out of their mother's house in Greenwich, CT, they decide to find apartments in New York City. Each of the sisters has an encounter with a very charming young man, who seems a bit too interested in their apartments, and the consequences are dire.
