Two actors and ex-lovers find themselves starring opposite each other in an off-off-Broadway 1930s melodrama. It doesn’t take long for the lines between life and art to blur, while the farcical antics of the play-within-a-play make for an unforgettable romantic comedy by award-winning playwright Sarah Ruhl. Award-Winning ICTC Associate Director Fortunato Pezzimenti helms a dynamite cast in this love letter to the theatre.
