                     A lonely woman           A windy day     A plastic bag:  A love story


Margarita is having a rough time.  She’s unemployed, broke and newly unattached.  She’s on her way to catch a bus to New York City to interview for a menial job she probably won’t get. She could use a miracle. A strong spring breeze blows one of those ubiquitous black plastic bags into her path…and into her life. This is no ordinary bag and this is no ordinary day.


Manuel Igrejas’ previous plays include Shrinkage, Kitty and Lina, Miss Mary Dugan and Hassan and Sylvia (both Fresh Fruit Festival Best Play winners.) Margarita and Max is directed by David Hilder who won the 2009 Best Director Award at the Fresh Fruit Festival and directedHassan and Sylvia. His other NYC credits include Blogologues and Daddy.


Margarita and Maxstars Kim McKean and Craig Fox. A recent transplant to New York, Kim McKean has extensive theater credits in Chicago and California and has appeared on HBO’s “True Blood” and ABC’s “Private Practice.” Craig Fox has performed with the Texas Shakespeare Festival, the Lark Theatre and NY Stage and Film. He won the Best Actor Award in the Fresh Fruit Festival for Miss Mary Dugan in 2009 and reprised the role of Kevin Pecinka in 2012. He can be seen at HA! Comedy Club and clubs all over NYC. 


The Midtown International Theatre Festival’s 2013 Season runs from July 15 – August 4, 2013.  John Chatterton created the MITF in 2000, a Midtown alternative to other theatre festivals, as a way to present the finest Off-Off Broadway talent in convenience, comfort, and safety.  The MITF’s artistic emphasis is on the script itself, and therefore the Festival focuses on effective but minimal production values. For more information, visit
