Dead Man's Dinner


By W.M. Akers

After ten years of siege, three women are trapped in the middle of the most dangerous war zone in the world: the Upper West Side. In a frigid rent-stabilized apartment, Olympia and her daughter Petra have spent years surviving any way they can. When Petra falls in love with Jackie, an injured soldier, their food supplies are stretched to the limit. As death creeps closer, each woman will be torn between love and hunger—and hunger always wins.

Book & Characters by Sean Patrick Monahan Music & Lyrics by Alexander Sage OyenDirector: Daniel GoldsteinDesmond Channing spent much of his short life basking in the spotlight. As Drama Club President and star of all the productions at his Florida public high school, Desmond never imagined he could fall from grace. But when Evan Harris, a hotshot transfer student from New York, ripped the rug out from under him, Desmond responded, as any diva would, with lethal force. Now, Desmond is forced to relive his darkest hour by telling the tale of his humiliation and subsequent insanity over and over again at The Seventh Circle, Hells dingiest cabaret venue. As he begins his one-millionth consecutive show, Desmond performs with renewed frenzy and desperation; in the hopes that he can prove hes learned his lesson and be freed from his eternal, campy torment.Cast: Sean Patrick Monahan* as Desmond Channing *Appearing courtesy of Actors Equity Association

Additional Notes:
“Playwright Stig Dalager has given us a piece that is so complex that you have to pay close attention.... keeps you on your mental toes. The direction by Robert Greer is sleek and deliberate.... [H]is clarity of what is going on that helps give us similar clarity to follow it. Carol Carter ... transcend[s] the stereotype 'momma on a couch' portrayal ... takes both characters to a higher place where we care about and see them. Lauren Smith ... slips in and out of different characters with the turn of a head or cross of the stage, which really make her shine. Fergus Scully ... is also impressive in the way he just seamlessly weaves himself within and without the drama happening on stage. This is a work worth going to see for the writing and direction alone.” Reginald Jackson, ClubSocial-NY.com Read the full review at www.clubsocial-ny.com/journey-into-light-and-shadow-delivers-many-levels-of-drama/
