FACE presents a fast and funny comedy, "Nana's Naughty Knickers," by Katherine DiSavino.

Eighty-five-year-old Nana, played by Jo Thomas, has built a successful business selling lingerie to senior citizens. She is assisted by fellow octogenarian, Vera, played by Susan P-Tempel, and granddaughter Bridget, played by Christine Fraser.

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 handmade naughty knickers to every senior citizen in the five-borough area.

Adding to the madness are players Ronnie Schraer, Ron Hunter, Brian Fraser, Linda Hanner and Leslie Jenkins.
