God Help Us! - Starring Ed Asner - 3 performances only

GOD HELP US! is a play ripped from today’s headlines, an evening’s entertainment that is at once hilarious, unifying and thought provoking.  Two pundits, Larry (a liberal lad) and Randi (a conservative gal), find themselves confronted by GOD (the legendary Ed Asner), a wise, sarcastic, cantankerous and wildly funny character who is offended by what America’s political leaders have done to America. He has brought Randi and Larry to Purgatory for a lively debate about the issues our time. And whomever he finds more persuasive will get God’s “mighty thumb on the scale” in one or the other’s favor.  We learn that Randi and Larry were a couple back in their college days, but politics tore them apart – in large measure because they couldn’t learn how to disagree without being disagreeable.

You know, tricks like arriving on stage swinging from a ginormous chandelier. Dangling by her feet, upside down, before a spectacular dismount, bouncing in and out of choreographed dance routines, oh and singing, of course there was singing. All while wearing an incredible, dazzling onesie - and some killer heels. And this was the tone of the show for the next two hours. Up, down, front, back, left and right, Pink was everywhere, doing everything.

Family Matters

2 One Acts by David Macaray

Megan the Merciless
The year is 1982. The occasion is a family reunion of sorts. Megan, a brilliant but abrasive college professor, author, and social critic returns home after three years to visit her two sisters. Their father is in India seeking “spiritual renewal”, and their mom is serving a prison term for vehicular manslaughter. Not only does the reunion not go as hoped, but the old adage, “time heals all wounds” is rendered meaningless.

The Affair
Michael and Veronica have been involved in a torrid three-month affair. While it hasn’t been “earth-shaking” it has, up to this point, been adequate. She is married to a successful physician. He is unmarried, employed as a gardener at the country club where they met. She is bored, cynical and mature. He is childish and suffers from a profound inferiority complex. It’s a comedy.

She’s unresponsive to the fast-talking teenager who works to engage her with everything from philosophical riffs to brash seduction. Neither knows what this night holds in store. Hamish Linklater’s funny and ultimately spooky debut play explores life, death, and Doritos as these two characters cling to a temporary escape from loneliness.
