The Porcini Test - Selling Theatre Tickets Online


Laureen Vonnegut is an American fiction writer, filmmaker and playwright. The Porcini Test is her latest work.

Laureen's first book, Oasis, was hailed as “possessing a Felliniesque delirium, geopolitical knowingness, and womanly-wise toughness” (American Library Association). Over twenty of her short stories and movie scripts have been published worldwide, and her latest novel, Twin Lies, is read in book clubs across the world.


The world premiere of Laureen's first play, The Porcini Test, took place on the 17th of July at the Promenade Playhouse in Santa Monica. It will be running until August 22nd and tickets are available here. A feminine take on David Rabe’s darkly comedic Hurly/Burly, The Porcini Test is about old friends with hidden truths, girlfriends with concealed weapons, and boyfriends who need to know their fungi.

Why Ticket Tailor?

Laureen found Ticket Tailor through positive reviews from previous theatrical clients and was drawn to the convenience and predictability of a monthly rather than per-ticket payment plan. The option to add special discounts for groups with coupon codes was particularly useful, and proved to be one of the deciding factors in her choice.

Instead of sending customers somewhere else to purchase tickets, Ticket Tailor allowed Laureen to make the best use of her logo and social media, and sell tickets directly from her site.
