Liz Zimmerman joined forces with Sewer Rats Productions to make her Period House dreams come true during Philly Fringe 2019.

A few years later, Liz earned a professional certificate in Nonprofit Administration from UPenn’s Fels Institute of Government in an attempt to land a regular paying job during the last financial crisis.
