Twisted Valentines

Axial Theatre is hosting its sixth annual Twisted Valentines festival, a seasonal tribute to love, lovers and those determined to fling their own arrows at Cupid, that runs Fridays through Sundays, Feb. 7 – 16, 2020 in Pleasantville, and one Thursday the 13th @ 8.  These eight original one-acts, a mix of comedies and dramas, probe the depths of joy, despair, and everything above, below and in-between that love and lust are prone to evoke.

The plays are:

Love Contained by Lisa Kimball – In order to make a waitress notice him, a young man enters his inner world where he’s capable of so much more than just filling water and removing dirty dishes.

Calculating by Stephen Baluzy – The perfect Valentine’s gift? Don’t count on it.

Okay Valentine by Linda Bidwell Delaney – Different generations try to find common ground on Valentine’s day.

No Lovers for Helen by Niki Hatzidis – Will Dee’s matchmaking save her sister Helen from loneliness on Valentine’s Day?

Luella & Josh by Mandy Murphy – A good date is hard to find…

Riunité On Ice, That’s Nice! by Patrick Lennon – What makes two people special who think they’re anything but?   Perhaps a chance meeting on a special night.

Clear Dark Night by Susan Egginton – Sometimes, it is just written in the stars.

More by Evelyn Mertens – When ‘more’ is never ‘enough,’ are two people bound to keep running forever?
