RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Broadway

Leon Tolchinsky is ecstatic. He's landed a terrific teaching job in an idyllic Russian hamlet. When he arrives he finds people sweeping dust from the stoops back into their houses and people milking upside down to get more cream. The town has been cursed with Chronic Stupidity for 200 years and Leon's job is to break the curse. No one tells him that if he stays over 24 hours and fails to break the curse, he too becomes Stupid. But, he has fallen in love with a girl so Stupid that she has only recently learned how to sit down.

Fools is Neil Simon's wit with the social commentary at it's most fun and fanciful.  A joy to watch, perform, produce.  I often recommend this to people directing a first play because it is very nearly unbreakable, yet theatrically solid and an opportunity for real comic acting and interpretation.
