The event features three short plays from Philly-area playwrights — Renee Lucas Wayne, Julie Zaffarano, and Queen Lane resident Kathy Anderson (who you may recognize from East Falls Faces).

In only its first year of existence, the East Falls traveling soccer team stormed through the Philadelphia Parks & Recreation League last year like Maradona through a B team defense (sorry, I imagine the kids these days prefer Ronaldo or Messi) and pulled off an upset win to take home the title for the 10 and under division in December.

Cold Hands Warm Thoughts

A sucker for a sweet smile and a bad attitude hopes this time it’ll be different in a short story about love in wintertime.
