Period House

Posted September 7th, 2019

September 7, 8, 14, 15, 18, 21, + 22, 2019

Welcome to Period House, the luxury hotel and spa exclusively for ladies at that time of the month! Margaret isn’t the typical guest, and she has a lot to learn. Fortunately, an eclectic group of fellow guests and expert staff are there to guide and support her with ice cream, martinis, sass, and steam treatments.

$13 / 75 minutes


Ragtime Players coagulated just this summer to bring new local play Period House to Philly Fringe.  This wildly diverse crew includes actors who identify as African American, South Asian, and lesbian. The cast ranges from theater professors to fresh-in-town talent, and our playwright is a gay man who was raised and still resides in Northeast Philly. This melting pot of a theater company exists to crack up every kind of human out there.
