Gulfshore Playhouse presents Life x 3, by Yasmina Reza, author of the Tony Award-winning hit comedy Art. The play was initially presented in Europe before its critically acclaimed United States' debut on Broadway starring Helen Hunt and John Turturro in 2003. At first blush, the story seems simple. But is it? Henry and Sonia are spending a quiet evening at home. Sonia is preparing her reports. Henry is trying to deal with their sleepless six-year-old son. But Henry is about to have a bigger problem. He is on the verge of publishing two years of scientific research and is desperate to make a good impression on the distinguished senior scientist, Hubert Finidori. So when the doorbell rings and Hubert Finidori arrives with his rebellious wife in tow for dinner on the wrong night and there is no food in the apartment, (merely an ample supply of wine), it sets the stage for a riveting, catastrophic unraveling of normal civilized behavior. But what kind of a disaster will it be? See what happens when the scenario spins out of control three different ways. As witty and acerbic as Art, the delightful Life x 3 is fast-paced, thought-provoking comedy that will keep your head reeling and leave you laughing with delight and recognition.
The London Times called it "An extraordinary play...the writing is brisk, brittle, funny and lethally accurate." Talkinbroadway.com said it was "captivating and entertaining."
Special VIP priority seating complete with post performance catered reception to meet the cast will be held opening and closing nights in both locations.
The play will be performed October 4-13 at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers as part of the first "Season of the Foulds", and October 18-27 at The Norris Center in Naples.
