The Two Of Us Productions Small1.png

It’s the opening night of The Golden Egg on Broadway, and wealthy producer Julia Budder is throwing an opening night bash in her Manhattan townhouse. Downstairs the celebrities are pouring in, but the real action is upstairs in the bedroom, where a group of insiders have staked themselves out to await the reviews. The group includes the excitable playwright; the possibly unstable wunderkind director; the pill popping leading lady, treading the boards after becoming infamous in Hollywood; and the playwright’s best friend, for whom the play was written but who passed up this production for a television series. Add to this a drama critic who’s panned the playwright in the past and a new-in-town aspiring singer, and you have a prime recipe for the narcissism, ambition, childishness, and just plain irrationality that infuse the theatre—and for comedy. But don’t worry: This play is sure to be the hit they have all been hoping for! 

It’s Only A Play features Mark Leinung as playwright Peter Austin, Constance Lopez as producer Julia Budder, Brian Yorck as theater critic Ira Drew, Bill Solley as director Frank Finger, Jackie DiGorgis as star actor Virginia Noyes, Fred Sirois as best friend James Wicker, and Karissa Payson as fresh off the farm hired-help Augusta (Gus) Head.
