Staged Reading - The Hysterical Mysogynist & Regrets
By Murray Shisgal
Two Staged Readings
Directed by Alan Barkan
Tuesday - November 1, 2011 at 8 p.m.
ONE NIGHT ONLY - Pay What You Can - suggested donation $5 - $8
Actors Ensemble of Berkeley is pleased to present a staged reading of two previously unproduced plays by Murray Shisgal, the author of the award-winning film "Tootsie", starring Dustin Hoffman. THE HYSTERICAL MYSOGYNIST details a crisis in the relationship between a somewhat-successful playwright, his best friend, and his second wife, Ellen, who accuses him of never writing a play with a sympathetic woman character - and being a dog lover to boot!. REGRETS is about the trials and tribulations of painters and their muses as they approach middle age.
Directed by Alan Barkan, who previously directed "Barefoot in the Park" by Neil Simon, and Shisgal's own "Luv", both for Actors Ensemble of Berkeley on the Live Oak stage. Join us for the fun (and the kvetching!).
Pay What You Can - Suggested donation $5 - $8 ONE NIGHT ONLY. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Seats are first-come / first-served.
