For the first time in her life, Claudine has toppled head-over-heels in love. But her celebrity-financial-guru mother has obvious misgivings about her daughter’s amorous entanglements with Henry -- an artist with rugged good looks. He’s got just enough charisma along with a negative bank balance. But does money matter when happiness is on the line? Rich Girl is a clever and contemporary comedy about women and their relationship to men, mothers, and money - in that order. Can they ever really coexist? REGIONAL PREMIERE!

Rich Girl asks us to consider two of the most important goals in our life: love, and money. What happens when achieving one means giving up the other? How do you answer that question when your overbearing financial guru mother won’t ever let you get a word in edgewise? This comedy introduces us to Claudine, a young woman trying to protect her heart, as well as her wallet. Featuring some explicit language throughout and some sexual themes, this play is best suited for college aged students and adults, and may be appropriate for some mature high school students.
