RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Off-Broadway

The first of the three hit comedies produced Off Broadway under the title Power Plays, this is a ping pong power game played between a self absorbed executive and her seemingly drab secretary. Over an impromptu dinner together, the executive's condescending graciousness drains away as the secretary explains her fantasy of gaining immortality by killing someone famous and successful someone like her boss.
REVIEWS

"Classic comedies...with subversive details that keep catching you off guard....The evening...percolates with actorly inventiveness and a willingness to pursue a warped logic step by step into the land of absurdity. Has a heady sense of discovery, of seeing prototypical situations being twisted and spun to the point of dizziness, of disparate comic minds bouncing off each other." - The New York Times, Read More

"...an enriching collaboration between veteran masters of off-the-wall humor." - VarietyRead More

"A giddy delight." - New York Post

"Hilarious as well as thoughtful." - The New York Daily News


The Way of All Fish was originally produced at the Manhattan Theatre Club in New York City in April 1998 under the direction of Alan Arkin as a part of the collection of shorts, Power Plays.
