Just how well do you know all your "friends" on social media?In this fast-moving "light comedy about dark people leading private lives in public places," when the grieving Charlie Windsor meets the gregarious Diana Black-White in a New York Theater District bar they become instant BFFs. Much to the consternation of his closest friend since childhood, Broadway actor Ed McGrath, Charlie is almost immediately hurled into an overwhelming whirl of dark secrets, questionable loyalties, and highly dysfunctional family dynamics; a world for which Charlie is completely unprepared.
SEMI - FINALIST: B Street Theatre's New Comedy Festival 2020
"This is a funny, witty, and salacious satirical mystery! I appreciate the "queering" of this genre, which makes the story and characters feel fresh and intriguing. The scenes move at a brisk pace, and I found DeVita's dialogue to strike a great balance between hilarity and plot-driving exchanges.
