A comedy thriller:  Detective Morris Brummell and actor Christopher “Kit” Gill have much in common: both dream of success headlined in The New York Times and contend with overbearing mothers. Morris shares an apartment with his mother, Flora Brummell, while Kit’s mother, Alexandra, a recently deceased theatrical star, continues to haunt him.  Gill becomes a serial killer who is fixated on his late mother, who had been an actress, so Gill preys on older women who remind him of her. As a Broadway theater director and costumer, he adopts various disguises, e.g. priest, policeman, plumber, hairdresser, etc., to put his victims at ease (and also avoid being identified) before strangling them and painting a pair of lips on their foreheads with garish red lipstick. Gill strikes up a complicated and funny relationship with Detective Morris Brummel who is investigating the murders.

Listen to the tom-tom drums and the message spoken by the “Wordspinner” that opens and closes this adventure by Vera Morris. The name Pocahontas, belonging to the daughter of the powerful Algonquin Chief Powhatan, means “She-Who-Likes-To-Be-Mischievous.” It’s a fitting name, because the princess enjoys playing tricks and games, especially with Wolf, Raven and Squirrel… her playmates in the forest. She also makes friends with the English settlers in the struggling community of Jamestown. They have no food, and sickness has almost wiped them out. Pocahontas would like to help them, but Thundercloud, the medicine man, forbids it. When Captain John Smith, the leader of Jamestown, comes to the Indian village, he is condemned to death. In a thrilling scene, Princess Pocahontas saves his life and finds a way for the Indians and the settlers to live in harmony and friendship. Directed by Sean Gogan.

Christopher Durang’s family comedy tells the story of three self-absorbed middle-aged siblings. Masha is a successful film actress, who (at 50) is no longer being offered the sexy roles that made her famous. Her sister and brother continue to live in the family home in Bucks County, supported through the years by Masha’s lucrative film career. Her income dwindling, Masha has been advised to sell the family home; but for her siblings, this would be a life-altering catastrophe. A potential family tragedy quickly turns comic when we begin to realize how utterly clueless each sibling is about the effect of their actions on others, including the family housekeeper (a voodoo priestess) and Masha’s hyper-sexual “boy-toy” named Spike. This comic tour-de-force won the 2013 Tony Award as “The Best Play of the Year.”
