BORN YESTERDAY is a comedy about millionaire junk man, Harry Brock, who brings his beautiful, rough-around-the-edges girlfriend, Billie Dawn, to Washington, D.C. When Billie's lack of social graces becomes a liability to Brock's business dealings, he hires a journalist, Paul Verrall, to educate her. In the process of enlightenment, Billie painfully realizes the nature of Brock's crooked schemes.
On May 15, the public is invited to a community conversation talkback immediately following the show.
