Stickball Productions to Present TWO BOYS LOST, 10/9-25
Stickball Productions delved into the criminal underworld with The Friends of Eddie Coyle in 2012, sordid drunken late night antics with Bouncers in 2013, and now takes on an even more dangerous world - Christmas Eve at Ma's house.
Every Christmas, Eddie Molineaux searches the nooks of the MBTA to find his brother Jimmy and drags him home to Ma's for the holidays. Jimmy's mentally ill, homeless, and Eddie's been watching out for him in ways their mother wouldn't. But now Eddie's got a new wife, his own burdens, and thinking about following in his late father's footsteps into local politics. Dad was once the Mayor, and the family still grapples with his dying while under indictment. It's Jimmy's last Christmas alive, and everyone's got something to say, even if they all don't know what really happened.
Written by Bill Doncaster, Directed by James Peter Sotis, Two Boys Lost stars Cheryl McMahon* as Ma, James Bocock as Eddie Molineaux, Brett Milanowski as Jimmy, Shawna Ciampa as youngest sister Julie, and Jade Guerra as Angela, Eddie's new wife and new to this dysfunctional family.
Early arrivers can enjoy Step On Me, a comedy short by Lisa Wagner Erickson directed by Jen Alison Lewis and starring Liz Michael Hartford as Stacy, and Michael Towers as Scale. Think of it as a sort of live "cartoon before the feature," it's about a woman trying to end a volatile relationship with her bathroom scale - but Scale has other ideas.
Presented - in Stickball tradition - with a full bar in the performance space serving throughout the show.
