Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival
Winner! Samuel French Off Off Broadway Festival
Johnnie Vaugh, (60s,) an aging mobster, rages at his own deterioration, in a shell of an apartment at the Chateau Rene -- a crumbling relic that used to be "the finest address in town." Accompanied only by his trusted bodyguard, Phil, (60s,) Johnnie takes a sad, funny and touching look back at the flickering memories from their past. Two great roles for mature actors.
Published in Off-Off Broadway Festival Plays, 15th Series.
"...A touching look at the flickering of the high life and the dawn of old age. Johnnie, an aging tough guy playing Sinatra records in a shell of an apartment and raging at his own deterioration, is a truly memorable character." - Los Angeles Times, Best Bets
First production in Los Angeles, California, at Theatre 40, in 1994.
