Debra Lee Failla

If you Like "Game of Thrones" you'll Love The Lion in Winter

Sibling rivalry, adultery and dungeons – Lion in Winter, by James Goldman, is a modern day classic. Comedic in tone, dramatic in action – the play tells the story of the Plantagenet family who are locked in a free for all of competing ambitions to inherit a kingdom. The queen, and wealthiest woman in the world, Eleanor of Aquitaine, has been kept in prison since raising an army against her husband, King Henry II. Let out only for holidays, the play centers around the inner conflicts of the royal family as they fight over both a kingdom, as well as King Henry’s paramour during the Christmas of 1183. As Eleanor says, “every family has its ups and downs,” and this royal family is no exception.

​The Comedy Where Everyone gets Caught in the Act

"Noises Off " is a play within a play. It is about an ambitious director and his troupe of mediocre actors. The cast and crew are putting together a silly sex comedy titled, "Nothing On" - a single-set farce in which lovers frolic, doors slam, clothes are tossed away, and embarrassing hi-jinks ensue.

"BREAKING LEGS"
Written By: Tom Dulack
Directed By Melinda Pinto

Takes place in a Italian restaurant owned by Lou, a successful mobster. The restaurant is managed by his beautiful unmarried daughter, Angela. When Angie's former college professor, Terrence, arrives to ask for financial backing for a play he's written about a murder, the fun begins. The three main Mafiosi are intrigued with the idea of producing a play, not only Lou, but his "associates" Mike and Tina. Angie becomes enamored with Terrence, who is delighted to have the family's support. His bubble is burst when he discovers, through the "accidental" death by train of a lesser thug, that his backers are gangsters. Not only does Terrence have to wait around for the "family's" decision on whether or not to back his play, but he is also asked to write the eulogy for the fallen thug. In this madcap situation, murder and menace are served up with plenty of pasta and laughter.​
