Three One Acts by Italian American Playwrights

In a world where there are social and financial pressures everyday, three artists who sacrificed security and the norm to pursue their passions, cross each other's path through kismet. These three writers from Jersey City, Greenwich Village and Bay Ridge Brooklyn find out they have more in common than their passion for writing and their Italian American heritage.These "Men Without Myth"  scribe their father's wounds, in this laughable, dramatic and sometimes intense evening of One Act plays by John Dapolito, Charles Messina, and Robert Nicotra.   

Augie's Ring Written and Directed by John Dapolito
A down and out neighborhood legend drowns himself in isolation and booze at a local pub, only to encounter his latest and a most unlikely challenger.

Klepto Written and Directed by Charles Messina
Set in a cheap motel room in Fort Lauderdale, 1977 Klepto tells the tale of a boy with an encyclopedic mind for baseball and his complex relationship with his overbearing, kleptomaniacal mother, who have embarked on a journey south from NYC to find the boy's deadbeat father.

Like You Written and Directed by Robert Nicotra
It's St Paddy's Day, dinner is hot and the Yankees Exhibition game is about to start. It's just another night in Jackie Ryan's Life until he's interrupted by a knock on the door from a son he hasn't seen in seventeen years. His son wants answers; Jackie just wants to be left alone.
