Playwrights Jeremy Kehoe and Paul Elliott team to showcase one-act comedies in Talkin' It to the Streets.
Kehoe puts the street-themed show in gear with "Car Play: She & Him."
"Car Play" tells the tale of two middle-of-the-road castaways navigating pothole-laden lives. In the lead is Jill, whose ability to suck the color from a rainbow has pushed her therapist off the psychological ledge and left her flying solo in an overcrowded world. Tailgating her is Greg, whose inability to scratch his existential itch has left him looking for answers at the oracle of Gin and Tonic (much to the chagrin of his aspiring-actor bartender, Vinny). With a Monday-morning drizzle icing their lives, Greg presses the accelerator of change, sending the two on a collision course for a partly cloudy future.
The production moves up a few flights with Elliott's "Ledge, Ledger, and the Legend", recently listed as one of the 25-most produced one-act plays in the last 20 years. When Peter climbed out on that ledge to commit suicide, he thought J.M. was trying to stop him. Wrong!!!! "Who knew Suicide could be so much fun?"
