When Devon visits Simone for an end-of-summer sibs fest on Martha’s Vineyard, she finds her little sister changed beyond recognition. As personal assistant to wealthy and demanding trophy wife Michaela Kell, Simone enjoys a lavish beachfront lifestyle that these girls never could have imagined growing up in blue-collar Buffalo—but is all this luxury really free of cost? Worlds collide and sisters square off in this keenly-observed comedy about ambition, regret and the choices that shape who we become.

REVIEWS

"...the comedy is as bitingly sarcastic as it is wonderfully human." - Broadway World, Read More 

Elemeno Pea premiered at Actors Theatre of Louisville in Lousiville, KY in March of 2011 under the direction of Davis McCallum.

Using the searches to narrow down my choices, this came up.
As a general comment, and trust me I am not a prude in anyway,
I am so disappointed in the amount of plays that are written and published
that seem to rely so heavily on cuss words to be "innovative and current".
It's tiresome and cheap, and it narrows the scope of who would like to see your
work.
There are great play topics and great writing going on, but stop cheapening your
status by feeling the need to cuss.....it's on it's way out.....
and those of us who teach........and those of us looking to prepare kids for college auditions
would GREATLY appreciate some good ol' creative, deep expressions of the human condition,
without the filth.
Thank you for reading!
