WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

SERENITAS MEDIA and EXTRABOLD PRODUCTIONS are pleased to announce the world-premiere production of the double feature Crother Spyglass and The Resistible Rise of Fatlinda Paloka, directed by Leah Bonvissuto. Exploited by his nickel-nursing boss, dynamic ad man Ray Crother in turn exploits young Adam, a new hire. As Ray and Adam get drunk in Central Park in the middle of the workday, Ray vents about his tour in the Gulf War, his wife's cancer, his frustration with his Dad, his boss' agoraphobia, and his disdain for Crother Spyglass -- the family business of manufacturing decorative telescopes and umbrella stands. It takes another new hire, gorgeous Christine, to bring Ray-Ray to a moment of epiphany. Something has happened to the sleepy town of Greenville, Georgia. Something unnatural in the form of... pizza! Highly addictive pizza served by a terrifying person who has come from a place in the Balkans, where in summertime, the livin' ain't so easy. Written with uncommon wit by playwright Marcy Wallabout, this is a sparkling and socially important dark comedy about how each of us adjusts to a world anxious with change. A preview version of The Resistible Rise of Fatlinda Paloka was a smash hit at New York's Beyond Brecht Festival in November 2007. The production features scenic design by Elisa Giordano, costume design by Cat(herine) Fisher, and lighting design by Aimee Schneider.
