“Men Are Dogs” Playwright In Englewood For Three Nights
To start off the new year, Lemon Bay Playhouse has chosen “Men Are Dogs” to entertain you. The play was written by Joe Simonelli and will be directed by Ric Goodwin. The show will run from January 16 through February 10, 2019.
We welcome Joe Simonelli, the playwright, who will be attending three performances of his play with a post-show discussion. The performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday, January 17, 18 and 19, 2019. This is your chance to meet a New York City playwright and actor right here at Lemon Bay Playhouse in Englewood, Florida. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet the author and discuss the performance, with the director and actors, at a talk back after one of these select performances.
Mr. Simonelli’s plays have been delighting audiences since the year 2000! His titles range from dark comedies, light musicals, ghost stories and Christmas plays to dramas. He has been writing and performing in plays at the Jersey Shore, Staten Island and Manhattan since 2000. His plays get performed around the United States and Canada on a regular basis. He currently resides in Staten Island, New York. Visit his website at www.joesimonelli.com for more information.
In this comedy being performed at Lemon Bay Playhouse we find out that Dr. Cecelia Monahan has a serious problem. As a therapist who runs a support group for single and divorced women, she must listen to a number of relationship problems from her unusual cadre of patients as well as deal with the unsolicited advice of her live-in mother on subjects ranging from dating to cooking recipes. The doctor, however, is not above using some unorthodox methods of her own such as hiring out of work actors to role play with her patients. It is only when Cecelia meets the new substitute package delivery man that the doctor must learn to practice what she preaches!
