SYNOPSIS:

Lipstick is a silly, sweet farce with a heart of gold and a drawer full of sex toys. Anna has invited Kelly over for dinner, but is it a date? Or just hanging out? Just in case that wasn’t confusing enough, a cavalcade of visitors crashes their evening - an ex-girlfriend, a BFF, a handyman, a mom, and a parade of potential suitors. Hijinks, of course, ensue, in this play-shaped love letter to the queer community. Lane Michael Stanley is a transgender director, playwright, filmmaker, and producer, and the co-founder of Secretly Famous Productions. They are also a native Marylander, and longtime FPCT friend. Their 2017 10x10x10 submission An Addict Named Hal is now a full, feature film. Lipstick will be directed by Jeff Miller, a queer, neurodiverse artist in the Baltimore area.

CAST BREAKDOWN:

ANNA, woman, late twenties, any race. Highly neurotic and visibly queer. 
* This role calls for the partial removal of clothing and a kiss with a woman.
MAL, man, late twenties, Black. Outgoing and flamboyant.
KELLY, woman, twenties, any race. Friendly and sweet but determined.
*This role calls for a kiss with a woman.

DOROTHY, woman, fifties, Black. Mal's mom.
