Tony Braithwaite Returns

to Montgomery Theater

With His High-Energy Comic Fury

Two numbers get transposed at the Department of Motor Vehicles leading an unsuspecting young woman down a twisting road of absurdity – with laughs at every turn.

Ten Percent of Molly Snyder stars Barrymore Award Winner and Philadelphia favorite Tony Braithwaite, who appeared in last season's wildly funny and successful comedy Rounding Third. Leading comic actress Leah Walton makes her debut at Montgomery Theater in the title role.

When Molly Snyder (Leah Walton) innocently visits the DMV to fix a typo on her driver's license, she inadvertently opens the door to interminable frustration. It becomes apparent early on that the universe constructed for Molly is a tangled web of incongruity. Each step toward seeming resolution presents a road sign for laughter. Of course, these taunts of redemption are all brought about by The Man (Tony Braithwaite) who, in each scene, takes on an unexpected altered persona. While Molly is literally driven to the brink, we are able to see bits of our own lives in these familiar twists of bureaucracy extending toward chaos and farce. After all, how many times have you been told by a friendly Customer Service rep, "The form has been sent" even though they are really thinking, "The wheels are in motion, and whatever chaos ensues is no concern of mine now!"

Artistic Director Tom Quinn says, "We are excited to treat our audiences once again to the talents of Tony Braithwaite. Tony and Leah have both been a joy to work with on this production. We can't wait to show it off!" Imaginatively staged in Montgomery Theater's intimate space, Richard Strand's Kafkaesque comedy will have you laughing all the way home. Provided, of course, that you don't have a typo on your driver's license!

Ten Percent of Molly Snyder is sponsored by Univest Corporation, a long time supporter of Montgomery Theater. "At Univest, we believe supporting the arts in the Indian Valley is an opportunity for us to live out our corporate mission – 'to maintain an active role in our communities' – and our 'Community' core value – to be 'committed to serving our communities through strong leadership, volunteerism and financial support,'" says William S. Aichele, Chairman, President and CEO of Univest Corporation. "The Montgomery Theater is a natural fit for our support, nurturing the growth of the arts through dance, drama, music and more."

The doors open 20 minutes before curtain. For more information and reservations call 215-723-9984 or reserve online at
