Mrs Smith Presents a Benefit for the Carlyle Foundation Empowerment School for People and Cats with Severe and Persistent Challenges

Written by David Hanbury and Michael Goldfried
Directed by Michael Goldfried
Starring David Hanbury as Mrs. Smith


A high-strung ex-socialite throws a benefit to raise funds for her elaborate healing center for people and cats with severe and persistent challenges. Things go horribly wrong. A hilarious romp into the heart of darkness – in the tradition of the Ridiculous Theater, John Waters and Moliere.
