Confronting Your Muse In Anthony Piccione's CAROL
Anthony J. Piccione is on fire.
In the last year, powerful and highly acclaimed productions workshops, and readings of his plays, A Therapy Session with Myself, An Energy Tale, the recently published Ebol-A-Rama, What I Left Behind, The Personality Play, and Two Cousins and a Pizza have enjoyed local and national attention.
His latest, Carol - a short, allegorical dark comedy - will be presented at Manhattan Repertory Theatre, March 9 & 10 at 6:30pm, as part of their New Works Short Play Series. The theater is located at 17 W 45th St #301, NYC.
THE PLOT: Vinny, a young, successful best-selling novelist just started work on his next book. However, he has been significantly affected by his crippling anxiety, which he is only able to overcome by drinking considerable amounts of red wine. After some help from his friends, he has been able to finally move on, and start functioning as both a writer and a civilized person without it. However, on one particularly stressful night, the temptation strikes again, as he receives a return visit from his old muse.
Directed by Jessica Slaght, Carol will be presented with three other short plays. Tickets: $20. Visit www.manhattanrep.com/new-works-short-play-event-series-7/ for more minfo.
