Love, Sex, and the I.R.S.
Directed by Elly Award winning Bobby Grainger
“LOVE, SEX, & THE I.R.S.” The classic farce that everyone should be doing – especially around tax time! Jon Trachtman and Leslie Arthur are out of work musicians who room together in New York City. To save money, Jon has been filing tax returns listing the pair as married. The day of reckoning comes when the Internal Revenue Service informs the “couple” they’re going to be investigated. Leslie masquerades as a housewife, aided by Jon’s fiancée, Kate. Complicating matters further, Leslie and Kate are having an affair behind Jon’s back, Jon’s mother drops in unexpectedly to meet her son’s fiancée, and Leslie’s ex-girlfriend shows up demanding to know why Leslie has changed and won’t see her anymore. Like a cross between I Love Lucy and Some Like it Hot.

Twelfth Night is regarded as one of the greatest comedies ever written and beloved by audiences for generations—and we’re taking it to Hawaii! Separated from her twin brother in a shipwreck, Viola disguises herself as a man and falls in love with her new employer Orsino. He, however, dotes on OIivia, who in turn falls for Cesario—who’s really Viola. Add in some misbegotten mayhem with an uptight servant, Malvolio, and what ensues is a cross-dressing comedy riddled with pain and triumph, humor and madness, transformation and redemption. Our sun-soaked Hawaiian production will brim with music and get audiences dancing to the heartbeat of unrequited love.

Angels In America is one of the most important American plays. It encapsulates the lives of the first settlers of America; building, living and dying all the way to the men and women building, living and dying in the 90’s. It’s a feast of incredible dialogue and character interactions that inspire and challenge any performer that reads it as well as being massively entertaining for audiences of all theatre-interest levels.
