Here's the scoop on my new play. It'd be great if you can make it!
|Susannah Holub plays Hermione, and Josh Taliafero plays Gingold (twins!). Lora Mirigiliani-Bell (not shown) also stars as Nurse Connie and Portia Portico. Margaux St. Ledger directs the production.||Lary Moten cranks up the zaniness as Dr. Bengali and Tedesco, while Jeannie Sconzo gives depth as Helen Midthassel-Kazarnowicz, reluctant homeowner and mother of twins|
|Imagine an obstetrician who believes that laughter is the best and ONLY medicine for a woman giving birth! Now imagine that that woman is having twins! That is the premise of Times Two, a riotously funny short play about a family and their zany doctor, Dr. Bengali, and his equally ditzy nurse, Connie.|
In the second part of the show, Homeowner's Blues, you'll find the same family several years later. Their twins have been born - Hermione, the girl, and Gingold, the boy.
They're totally rambunctious as their parents prepare to buy an old, dilapidated house from an unscrupulous realtor, Ms. Portico. Then, they flip when a crusty exterminator tells them about the bugs galore they can look forward to.
Don't miss this evening of fun and entertainment!
