RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Off-Broadway

The final act of the Off Broadway hit Power Plays, this farcical delight revolves around a workaholic dentist attempting to have a fling with his curvaceous assistant. His plans are set hilariously awry by an after hours patient who is a mega neurotic psychologist with a pain phobia and by a surprise visit from his son who has two heart bursting announcements to make: he is gay (but celibate) and, worse, he doesn't want to be a dentist after all.
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


In and Out of the Light 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.
