RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Off-Broadway

This comedy about marriage, fidelity, adulterous longings, existential panic and the theatre takes place in Leonard and Dinah's up state New York Greek revival farmhouse where slow moving disintegration is at work. Rooms are drifting into each other and trees and saplings have taken root indoors. Leonard is an actor who hasn't worked in eleven years; Dinah is an overworked costume designer who can't dress herself. They have invited their new neighbors, an overworked editor who delights in reciting nursery rhymes and his beautiful movie starlet wife, for dinner. Things explode when a friend who is a successful movie director, drops in. Old memories stir and new passions kindle as vegetables and Dinah's costumes fly.
