"An absinthe-fueled Alice in Wonderland!"
-Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times
"Scintillating comedy!...Gionfriddo's snappy dialogue is both urban and urbane, reflecting cultural values that have clearly gone off the tracks. Among the play's delightful conceits is its open question of whether the fears we shape our lives around are actually real, or our own speculative inventions."
-Steven Leigh Morris, LA Weekly
"Quite funny at times, the play is giddier than its dark edges and cynical points might lead one to expect"
-Les Spindle, Back Stage West
"A glorious tangle it will take long conversations over a few glasses of wine to unwind, but is worth the conversation."
-Frances Baum Nicholson, Pasadena Star News
The modern quest for fame and fortune gets a Furious spin in the West Coast premiere of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize winning play U.S. DRAG. This hilarious and witty, jet-black comedy follows Angela and Allison, two young women in Manhattan seeking love and happiness, but they'll settle for rent money. Along the way, they volunteer for a community advocacy group called SAFE (Stay Away From Ed) named for an elusive serial attacker terrorizing the city. (There's a hefty reward for his capture...) Their new circle of ?friends? includes their ruthless, socially stunted roommate; the celebrated author of a fictional memoir; a lonely man who feels kinship with crime victims; and a mousy "Ed survivor? reveling in her fifteen minutes of dubious fame. Everybody is looking for salvation in the arms of another in a group where no one has very much to give. And who is this "Ed" anyway? No one's ever seen his face, and everyone around them is beginning to act eerily "Ed-like"...
This is Ed.
