ONE SLIGHT HITCH Brings Awareness To Autism
Lewis Black, the acerbic, manic, belligerent stand-up comedian started his career as a playwright. After being turned down by numerous colleges, he earned his MFA degree at Yale Drama School. But that's a whole other story.
In 2013 Black wrote a play set in 1981 titled "One Small Hitch" soon to be changed to "One Slight Hitch." When it comes to something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue, few brides expect the something old to be an uninvited ex-lover...It's Courtney's wedding day, and her mom, Delia, is making sure that everything is perfect. The groom is perfect, the dress is perfect, and the decorations (assuming they arrive) will be perfect. Then, like in any good farce, the doorbell rings. And then all hell breaks loose. So much for perfect.
Featured in this hilarious farce are local talents Richard Rivera, Christine McCoy, Melanie Mino, Heather Armstrong, William Parker Shore, Deirdre Maloney, and Christopher Szabo, under the direction of Jerry Pilato.
