Synopsis – “Parts of a Night”
“Beleaguered and scared as hell about the opening of a new play they’re in, longtime acting partners Lili (Kim Schraf) and Hal (Matthew Vaky) assemble late at night in the green room to drown their worries in vodka. Their attempts fall short as old memories, hurt feelings, and raging middle-age insecurities bubble to the surface. They get support in their misery when complainers Dan (Rick Foucheux), the theatre house manager, and Myra (Chelsea Thaler), a way-past-tipsy ingenue) eventually stumble into the gossipy booze fest with secrets and shock-waves of their own. The vomitous roar of “you’ll get yours” calms only after just-desserts are served — with drinks of course. Dramatic and funny, sad and exciting — it’s life in the theatre for these utterly human specimens.” — Playwright/actor Rick Foucheux
