By Katherine DiSavino

 

Bridget and her Grandmother are about to become roommates. However, what Bridget saw as a unique opportunity to stay with her favorite Nana in New York for the summer quickly turns into an experience she’ll never forget. It seems her sweet Grandma is running an illegal boutique from her apartment, selling hand-made naughty knickers to every senior citizen in the five borough area!

 

Will Bridget be able to handle all the excitement? Will her Nana get arrested – or worse! – evicted?! 

Katherine DiSavino is a film and TV writer living in Los Angeles. She is one of the top 75 best selling playwrights published by Samuel French. Her three published plays have been translated into multiple languages and performed around the world. Theatrical critics have called her work “True-to-life,” “Superbly written,” and “entertaining and laugh-out-loud funny.”

 

Katherine grew up in the theatre – her parents own a professional Dinner Theatre outside of Philadelphia where she spent most of her formative years learning colorful words from actors and hiding underneath sets. This childhood also provided Katherine with a keen understanding of the theatrical market for audiences west of the Hudson River, which has certainly helped with the wide-spread popularity of her shows.

 

Since moving to Los Angeles, Katherine has worked with several screenwriters on feature scripts and TV pilots.
