The Theater Version – Play – offers a set that is off-centered platforms with a huge background screen, pop-out neon signs, and simple black boxes used for furniture. Costumer adorn various sparse wall-structures and/or hang mid-air on hooks.  Actors are on stage the entire play, in tableau from their last scene, or disappear but present, as the isolation and disconnection between them evolves throughout the work. 

A middle-aged good-looking WASP who is a Professor of Relationships, and a famous Self-Help Guru who can’t maintain a relationship, an American Indian who grew up on a poverty-stricken reservation turned upper-class unhappy housewife and who watches dungeon porn to escape, her Asian-American Insurance Executive husband who wants to be a Beatnik Poet and both pretending to be a sit-com perfect family, an African-American Goddess who is a brilliant PhD psychology student who dresses like Marilyn Monroe, with deep inadequacy and fear of intimacy issues, an aging American female Jew and Psychotherapist who is agoraphobic and lives with a blow up doll, and an Italian-American ex-motorcycle gangster who likes bubble baths and is having a Cybersex affair with the Jewish Psychotherapist, both pretending to be 20 and hot when they’re 69 and burnt out to a crisp – all seek an authentic life.

Each however, is hiding behind well-honed masks, costumes and psychological delusions that give them some sense of safety and false identity, but keeps them stuck.  As they pursue freeing themselves from their prisons, each comes face to face with the hard-cold truth – the very thing they must confront to evolve. When faced with the beast they run to a new delusion, a new costume and mask,  wreaking havoc in their lives and each others lives as they do! 

The Play follows these 6 characters, whose lives are intertwined, as they box and wrestle with their inner demons, one another, their pasts and the present. Each attempts to free themselves but end up out of control, and on a trampoline of psychological gymnastics that somehow makes sense, as we get to know the hidden, depthful inner lives of these lovely angelic jokers. 

THEMES:
There’s no freedom here, only different types of enslavement.
The image is more important than the human being. 
Market Value supersedes human value.
What does it mean to have an authentic life?
