Playwright Ashley J. Jacobson & Director Alexandra Siladi


The Dirty Blondes is pleased to present THE AMERICAN PLAY, a world-premiere production by Ashley Jacobson and directed by Alexandra Siladi, as part of the 4th Annual Planet Connections Theatre Festivity. The Festivity will take place May 30th through June 24th.

Two college students, Tim and Luis, bond over a fondness for Bret Easton Ellis in American Lit class.  As the boys try to define themselves as men, their fantasies of a Bateman-like existence expose deep-seated insecurities and desperations that they will do anything to hide.Created by women and told from a male perspective, THE AMERICAN PLAY asks what makes a man a monster.
