Parallel Lives

Two Supreme Beings, (women this time) plan the beginning of the world with the relish of two slightly sadistic suburban wives decorating a living room. Afraid that women will have too many advantages, the Beings decide to make childbirth painful and to give men enormous egos as compensation. From this moment, the audience is whisked through an outrageous universe where two actresses play men and women struggling through the common rituals of everyday life. With boundless humor, PARALLEL LIVES, written by Mo Gaffney and Kathy Najimy, reexamines the ongoing quest to find parity and love in a contest handicapped by capricious gods, or in this case, goddesses. Performance dates are: 3/31, 4/1, 4/6, 4/7, 4/8, 4/13, 4/14, and 4/15 at 7;30 pm, and 4/2, 4/9, and 4/16 at 2 pm.
