The Woman in the Wardrobe (La donna nell'armadio)

READ THE REVIEW OF THE WONDERFUL NIGHT + MARISA TRUBIANO’s INTERVIEW. From the screenwriter of La Dolce Vita and 8 1/2 comes an absurd, ironic, one act play written for “simple, deplorable entertainment.” Yet, with this story of a poet and his hidden secret, Ennio Flaiano gives us so much more. Defying his audience’s expectations once again, Flaiano plays with the rules of the detective mystery, pointing out the iniquities of modern bureaucracies that rule human existence. Echoes of Ionesco, Allen and the Marx Brothers make this one-act play an enjoyable and unforgettable experience. May 14th, 2012 – 7pm Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò (24 W 12 street) Origin Theatre Company In association with Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò and Kairos Italy Theater celebrates Ennio Flaiano on the 40th Anniversary of his death with the reading of The Woman in the Wardrobe (La Donna nell’Armadio) A One Act Play Part of Origin’s eighth annual ‘Mondays of May’ play reading series in association with NYU’s Glucksman Ireland House Free Admission Wine Reception to follow With: Rocco Sisto Tom O’Keefe Jesse Presler Carlo Giuliano Rosemary Fine Directed by Laura Caparrotti Translated by Marisa Trubiano The wine is generously provided by San Matteo...
