Through special arrangement with, 3 GUYS IN DRAG SELLING THEIR STUFF opens March 10th for 9 performances only. If you're near Baltimore, check out the funniest play in the history of Theatre. That is not a lie; merely a bit of artistic hyperbolizing!


“. . . a trashy delight . . . Diva and Lillian hark straight back to Jackie Gleason and Art Carney . . . And finally, a la South Park, results in a police shootout when someone plays with a cap gun. A satisfying result for a laugh-a-minute, harebrained play. It takes place on a suburban planet of its own.”
 —John Chatterton, OOBR

“With the help of some brilliant dialogue, and the clever antics of the three characters, your mind's eye will create the entire neighborhood including an elderly friend who is hit by a truck, a handsome Greek motorcyclist, and Diva's mother in the nursing home across the street. Lillian's punch, made especially for the occasion, is heavily spiked and the plot gets more outrageous as the "girls" imbibe.”
—KDHX, St. Louis

“3 Guys in Drag Selling Their Stuff is side-splitting, to say the least . . . wicked wit . . . hilarious. Wells' script is silly, but structured and sprinkled with sensitive moments that further endear his characters to audience members.” —Elias Stimac, New York Off-Off Broadway Review

“This play does what Beckett was trying to do, but Beckett was too squeamish to face the facts of the decline of the West. Wells faces them with hilarious completeness, and therefore is able to be both funnier and more tragic than Beckett ever was.”
—Robert Patrick, Drama Desk and OBIE Award Winning Playwright and Author of Kennedy’s Children.

“3 Guys' provides color coordinated joys and sorrows . . . a surreal but touching comedy by Edward Crosby Wells. Whether you call them drag queens or cross- dressers, whether or not you admire their heightened appreciation for the extra dimensions of style in female clothing, these males have all the human emotions of everyone else.”
—Chuck Graham, Tucson Citizen

"For two hours, we witness the dysfunctional antics of the trashiest members of the Social Register; it's a sort of ‘Grey Gardens’ garage sale." 
—James Reel, Tucson Weekly

“A raucous comedy gets unleashed . . . hilarious . . . The unexpected complications create the high humor.” 
—Jesse Greenburg, The Desert Leaf, Tucson

“. . . it actually connects to issues that profoundly matter . . . we have a duty to think on these things and do what little we can to make this world a better place.” 
—Andrew Eaton, The Scotsman, Edinburgh, Scotland

“ . . . very, very funny. It is also extremely rude, but if you are broad-minded enough then the one-liners come so thick and fast you barely have time to recover from the last joke before the next one slaps you in the face . . . Like any good play, the audience felt drawn to the characters and by the time they finished with a big show tune the fact that they were men in drag seemed to be the most natural thing in the world.” 
—David Muncaster, The Knutsford Times, England

Deb Flomberg, Denver Theatre Examiner

“. . . fun, campy, sometimes poignant. It may not change your life but it may make you change your red muumuu. The show is filled with witty one-liners and the expected crass sex jokes and vibrators. If you are looking for an evening of campy barbs and drag-queen bitchiness, you’ll get your money’s worth.” 
—Susan Zelenka, Daily Loaf, St. Petersburg, FL

“If you're looking for profound insight into the world of gender bending, well, look elsewhere. This show offers a few profound moments where you really 'get' where it's all coming from, but for the most part, it's a frothy, funny and at moments hammy ode to men in dresses and the bitter travails of yard sales. The play is by Edward Crosby Wells who has definitely gone for the silly, but the play has sufficient structure and sensitive intimacy to endear these characters to the audience even as they strut and pose and play their roles with farcical physical comedy and sharply witty lines . . . The simple fact of it is that when you hear of a play called 3 Guys in Drag Selling Their Stuff, you can pretty much figure on something witty and a little out of the mainstream. If you think that means good fun, you would be right on the money . . . profound moments . . . but for the most part, it's a frothy, funny and at moments hammy . . . Go, enjoy a guilty pleasure with an offbeat comedy that lets you put your mind in park and laugh.”
—Lynn Welburn, Daily News, Nanaimo, B.C., Canada

“‘Three Guys in Drag Selling Their Stuff’ provides comedy, definition of friendship . . . witty . . . a light-hearted, refreshing comedy . . . an airy play to watch . . . constantly keeps the jokes flowing.”
—Westley Thompson, The Daily Athenaeum, Morgantown, WV
