It’s time you saw The Patsy!

“The singular downtown artist” (The New York Times), David Greenspan plays all eight roles in Barry Conners’ feisty drawing room comedy which initially premiered on Broadway in 1925. Filled with familial intrigue, marital sparring, lovers in pursuit, country club scandals, and labors of the heart, Transport Group’s The Patsy explores a family’s aspirations of wealth, status, and love in pre-depression America through Greenspan’s incomparable performance.
