Londos D'Arrigo, the hard-hitting comedy writer for Phyllis Diller, Lily Tomlin, and Joan Rivers, brings the sensational new comedy, Spreading It Around.

Angela Drayton, a wealthy widow living in an up-scale retirement community, is tired of handing out money to her unappreciative children. So she starts the “S.I.N. (Spending It Now) Foundation,” to give to those truly in need. This terrifies her greedy son, driving him to devise a plan to have her committed. Featuring delicious roles for adult and mature actors, this poignant family comedy has played numerous theatre in the US and Canada, and continues spreading the laughs around. 

"The show has a surprise ending which will leave you in stitches. So for a look at a brand new comedy, be sure to catch 'Spreading It Around'." - theatremirror.com

"...viewers who appreciate the art in wickedness will find much to love to hate." - rouguecritic.com

"It is real.  It is real funny.  It is really funny.  I give it a solid 10 on the proverbial scale." - Publishers Feature Service

"Judging by the audience response on opening night - a laughter tsunami and a standing ovatioin - tickets will be scarce.  Grab them now." - Dunwoody Crier

Spreading It Around received its World premiere at Stage Door Players, Atlanta, Georgia in January 2009 where it received standing ovationis and set box office records.
