Genre: Comedy
William Saroyan, others, directed by Barbara Vann

Obie-winning MEDICINE SHOW, the longest running experimental theatre company in New York, is presenting the world premiere of "Making Money and 19 Other Very Short Plays," by William Saroyan, along with a set of world premiere short plays, two John Gruen pieces, and short pieces by other authors. Saroyan is the author of The Time of Your Life (1939) which won the New York Drama Critics' Circle award and a Pulitzer Prize (which Saroyan refused) as well as popular, pacifist and heartily subversive novels such as The Human Comedy. MAKING MONEY AND 19 OTHER SHORT PLAYS, written in the mid-sixties, question deep flaws in American culture, from the impact of financial and medical practices on human values to the viability of a counter-culture, and are even more relevant today than when they were written. Medicine Show will be presenting, in addition, other comic short plays by critic and memoirist John Gruen ("Ted and Dexter" and "Welcome Back, Jeremiah Tasca!"), Brian Murphy, Lella Heins, Frederick Turner and Kitty Chen. MAKING MONEY AND 19 OTHER SHORT PLAYS is directed by Obie-winning director Barbara Vann and stars Candice Fortin, Felix Gardon, Jason Alan Griffin, Beth Griffith, Renee Hermiz, Norma Hernandez, Richard Keyser, Eva Nicole, Ward Nixon, Charles J. Roby, Peter Tedeschi and Greg Vorob.
