A Room of My Own
October 8, 2016 @ 8:00 PM - 10:30 PM
An event every week that begins at 8:00pm on Saturday, repeating until October 15, 2016
CT PREMIERE – Directed by Charles Messina
Charles Messina’s semi-autobiographical comedy, ‘A Room of My Own,’ revolves around a writer who grows up in a wacky Italian-American family. Set in a small tenement apartment in late 1970s Greenwich Village, the play follows in the grand tradition of playwrights like Neil Simon, who used their own early family lives as inspiration to create indelible and uniquely American Broadway hits.
Carl Morelli is a writer who reminisces about his adolescence and childhood dreams of the world outside his crowded downtown tenement. Wishing for his own room–and an Atari video game–young Carl shares the tiny studio in a five-flight crumbling walk-up apartment with his unemployed father, older sister, and strong-willed mother. Other relatives include an estranged aunt and a high-strung uncle. (contains adult language)
