EdibleBrains is pleased to announce that Molly Rydzel's Certifiable, directed by Mark Karafin, will be making its world premiere at the Connelly Theatre at 7pm on Sunday, August 11, 2013 as part of the New York International Fringe Festival (FringeNYC). Check out a sneak peek below!

Certifiable is the story of a crazy sommelier, a torrid love triangle, and the wine they drank. Pam (Crystal Arnette: The House of Von Macramé, #serials @the flea) is a certified Sommelier who falls crazy in love with Greg (Kett Turton: Wrath of the Titans, Gypsy 83). However, when Pam loses her ability to quell her schizophrenic episodes, their love comes to an abrupt and devastating end. Greg goes on to find comfort in the arms of Marianne (Neka Zang: Rock Of Ages, Wicked), a very nice young woman who is much more... appropriate. Together they live a perfect life in a perfect home with many perfect friends but inside their picture perfect marriage, Greg remains secretly tormented by his feelings for Pam. This thrilling new play is about the love we wish we never gave up on. It is the story of what could have been.
