Scrabble—a family-friendly game or a million-dollar business that will tear you apart? Comedy troupe SWOMO tries to find out with an original play in the Little Building Cabaret on Monday night. Take a seat and relax after a long day at the Boston Marathon. Scrabbled: The Tiles and Tribulations of a Board Game Heir has a little bit of everything, from triple word scores to blank tiles to that burgundy bag, shaken vigorously in hopes of avoiding another vowel. 

Hilton Dresden, SWOMO member and sophomore writing, literature, and publishing major said, “I play a Scrabble heir with a similar personality to Lindsay Lohan.”

If that doesn’t have you H-O-O-K-E-D, then maybe the free admission will.
