NOTE: Tickets for Cake, Drinks, and Lies are handled directly through the Boston Theatre Marathon.

Cake, Drinks, and Lies

Following an unwanted divorce, Miriam, a committed food lover, begins a whirlwind pattern of lies when she meets sexy, alcoholic Angelo. Could her addiction and a tub of chocolate frosting lead her to true love? 

Please note, no cake was harmed in the writing of this piece.


Boston Playwrights’ Theatre produces the annual Boston Theater Marathon (BTM), an award-winning, all-day marathon of new 10-minute plays. The plays are chosen from approximately 400 entries from New England playwrights, and the 50 selected plays are produced by 50 New England theatre companies which donate their time (and talent!) to this event. 

Inspired by the iconic Boston Marathon, the BTM is a theater endurance event designed to make connections between local playwrights and local theatres—seeding new collaborations and strengthening existing ones, and encouraging more companies to consider producing new plays by local writers!—and to introduce audiences to the breadth and depth of the Boston playwriting and theatre scene.

The yearly event provides a showcase—and a connecting point—for the entire theatre community.

Generously supported over the years by the Boston University Center for the Humanities and by individual donations, the BTM gifts its net proceeds to the Theatre Community Benevolent Fund, an organization that helps area theatre artists and companies in crisis.

In 2000, the BTM received a special Elliot Norton Award from the Boston Theatre Critics Association for “Enlivening Local Theatre.”
