The Geller Girls

World Premiere

"I'm thrilled to say that I love pretty much everything about The Geller Girls." —Wendell Brock for the AJC

A world premiere by Janece Shaffer

For young sisters Rosalee and Louisa Geller, Atlanta is full of opportunity and optimism for the future. Rosalee has finally convinced her father to help her open her own dress shop (maybe) and Louisa’s childhood sweetheart is about to officially pop the question (they’ve practically been engaged since she was six years old). Yep, any day now…

But this is Atlanta in 1895, on the eve of the Cotton States and International Exposition. And just like the Exposition was a huge catalyst for Piedmont Park, Atlanta, and the entire South, it also brings change and uncertainty to the Geller girls. It also brings them Charles Heyman. Charming, handsome Charles Heyman. Charles Heyman from New York City.

By favorite Atlanta playwright Janece Shaffer (Managing Maxine, Bluish, Broke).
