In a fairy-tale kingdom obsessed with pop culture and social media, fairy godmothers are lawyers and the Three Little Pig-arazzi chase celebrities. But when Cinderella leaves her self-absorbed prince and winds up in jail with an unlikely girl squad, she doesn't just cause a sensation--she starts a revolution. Orange Is The New Glass is a warmhearted comedy full of clever characters, now published by Playscripts, Inc.
