WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Cold Coffee and Turtle Soup is an evening of two new, exciting, humorous, and soulful plays. Cold Coffee follows best friends, George and Lenny, through their 11-year morning ritual of coffee in city park. Funny and heartfelt, the two men tackle UFO's, the Muppets, deli meats, radical Buddhist monks, popsicle stick jokes, the South, self-help, and being stuck in the circle of life. Turtle Soup finds two brothers, Hank and Enos, stuck in the middle of nowhere with a turtle, a knife, a decaying tree, an enormous sack of soup cans, and the hope that Ma will come and find them. The play is an absurdist take on loneliness, brotherhood, nourishment, and home. Together, the plays are an exploration of what it is to be brothers and friends, and how difficult it can be to simply move on.
