Agrodulce

Synopsis: Agrodulce (Italian for bittersweet/sour-sweet) is a one-act play that deals with a family during the 24 hours after the sudden death of the matriarch. The story happens out of chronological order, instead unfolding like memory. It is sad, funny, bitter, and sweet.

Agrodulce is being presented as part of Skeleton Rep's Salon Series, a semi - monthly reading series that creates space for new plays to develop and receive exposure in front of a supportive audience in a comfortable setting (like a living room!), for the simple cost of bringing your own snack/drink. Afterward, the company then invites the audience to mingle with the actors, each other, and the playwright.

Director & Playwright: Ria T. DiLullo
With: Barron Bass, Claire Buckingham, Michelle Cage, John Carlin, Brendan Cataldo, Emmanuel Linden-Broner, Dani Martineck, Courtney McClellan & Miranda Poett

Wake Up Call
Dec
9
to Dec 18

Wake Up Call

Synopsis: In the midst of an unexpected double shift (on Christmas Eve, no less) a group of degenerate hotel employees stumble their way through an unusual night of service. It’s a “coming of age when you’re already of age” story. Sometimes it takes a miracle to grow the hell up. ke Up Call s an 90 minute contemporary play set in the lobby of a luxury boutique hotel in New York City. In the respect that hotels are transitional places for the guests, the same is true for the people that work there. Navigating through the misadventures of the evening, from outlandish guests to unpredictable coworkers, we follow their journey into adulthood. Sort of.

Racioppo is sharply funny, giving out a natural charm that never seems dickish, even when he screams at people parking in the “no parking zone” (some truly funny moments happen with him literally screaming at cars we can’t see and then ending with “Happy Holidays...”).
— The Arts Wire Weekly
The most stellar aspect of Wake Up Call is undoubtedly how well the writing meshes with the chemistry of the actors... Racioppo and Gebauer’s bromance is particularly engaging, with their “I like my women like I like my…” exchanges generating constant laughs.
— Theatre is Easy
