Women Without Men
(5 Drama Desk, 2 Lucille Lortel, and 1 Off-Broadway Alliance awards nominations)
Shannon Harrington as Scout in To Kill A Mockingbird
Making her Off-Broadway debut in the winter of 2016, Shannon was honored to work with a female director (Jenn Thompson) and an all-female cast to bring Hazel Ellis' lost play - Women Without Men - back to life. Ms. Ellis wrote the play in the 1930s, and it had only one production at the famous Gate Theatre in Dublin, until the Mint Theater's Artistic Director Jonathan Bank discovered it and decided to produce it here in America for the first time. Shannon was very happy to be part of such an amazing cast of actresses, and to perform on the City Center II stage. The show received Lucille Lortel Award nominations for "Best Revival" and "Best Costumes", and an Off-Broadway Alliance Award nomination for "Best Revival".
