Open-Door Playhouse Debuts SIX ITALIANS, SEVEN FISHES Next Month

In the play Six Italians, Seven Fishes, an Italian-American family is gathered at the home of Joe and Marie for Christmas Eve dinner prior to Midnight Mass. Dinner (the seven fishes, a family tradition) is on hold because Vinnie and his Polish wife Peony have not yet arrived. The hours drag by, and Vinnie and Peony are still missing. Has something happened to them? Are they all right? Will the family ultimately be together for Christmas Eve dinner?

Bernadette Armstrong, the founder of Open-Door Playhouse, directs a cast that includes Elaine Mello, David Purdham, Anne Cooper, Gary Lamb, Natalie Eleftheriadis, Michael Fletcher, Oscar Maldonado and Leah Jarvik.

Patricia Motto is the playwright. This is the fourth of her plays being presented by Open-Door Playhouse.

Plays are produced by Bernadette Armstrong, with assistance from Associate Producer Laree Griffith and. sound engineer David Peters. Recorded at The Oak House Studio in Altadena, CA. Sound Effects provided by Audio Jungle, music from Karaoke Version.
