The short play DINNER THEATER, a 25-minute dark comedy about a couple and their recently adjusted sexual boundaries, will have two different productions in the coming months and is in competition for a third.
The play has also made the British Theatre Challenge Short List of the Sky Blue Theatre Company in London. 30 plays made the list (out of nearly 300 submissions). The top five plays will be selected later this month for a production in the fall.
This play was developed at The Actors Studio Playwright/Director Unit West and at Antaeus Theatre Company‘s Playwrights Lab
Theatre40’s production of IT IS DONE opened January 17th and the critic’s are loving it:
“This mystery is so well written, you will be kept guessing until near the end when the truth is revealed and IT IS DONE.” Shari Barrett, Broadway World
“Alex Goldberg’s play is pure entertainment. It is a well-crafted character-driven play that unexpectedly moves in a number of directions up through the final moments of terrifying unpredictability.” Joe Straw, Joe Straw #9
“Terrific performances and some gasp-worthy twists make Alex Goldberg’s excursion into the outer limits one of T40’s best.” Steven Stanley, Stage Scene L.A.
“Alex Goldberg has created a play that will, from start to finish, surprise, fascinate and grab you by the throat. Go!” Ingrid Wilmot, Will Call
“IT IS DONE is a scary, funny, creepy, cunning show which will grip, surprise, and entertain at the same time.” Elaine Mura, Splash Magazine.
Only seven performances remain. Tickets can be purchased at Theatre40’s website.
