RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Off-Broadway

Each play is an absurdist take on marital infidelity, one instance set on the Upper West Side of Manhattan and the other in Old Saybrook, Connecticut. Riverside Drive's Fred Savage, a homicidal, paranoid, schizophrenic vagrant ex-copywriter, has been stalking a screenwriter for weeks, convinced that his prey stole his idea - in fact, his life - to create a successful movie plot. In Old Saybrook, an orthodontist is hosting her sister and golf-mad brother-in-law, a plastic surgeon, at her grand suburban house. When a couple who once owned the building stops by, they spark an old fashioned sex farce that is full of verve and cunning.

"Full of funny material." - The New York Daily News 

"Non-stop one-liners." - Curtainup.com
