Tyler Perry's Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman Scorned

A stage play written, directed, and produced by Tyler Perry.

It is a beautiful day when Anita’s sister Mona, gets married. Anita is thrilled that she is financially stable and has the means to give her little sister the wedding she’s always dreamed of. All seems well in paradise but Anita’s friends believe that she is still hurt from a failed relationship years earlier. Anita insists that she is happy but at the prompting of her best friend decides to give love another chance…through Internet dating.  Anita meets the man of her dreams. Unfortunately all that glitters isn’t made of gold. As a game of cat and mouse ensues, a victimizer can easily become a victim because truly… Hell hath no fury like that of a woman scorned.

Don't miss this thrilling and dramatic live stage performance in Florence!
