ABOUT ALICE
Off-Broadway: Theatre for a New Audience @ Polonsky Shakespeare Center
Written by Calvin Trillin
Directed by Leonard Foglia
Cast includes: Jeffrey Bean and Carrie Paff
About Alice, a two-character play by Calvin Trillin, is inspired by the author’s 2007 memoir of the same title—a love letter to his wife Alice, who died in 2001 at the age of 63 due to complications from cancer. About Alice incorporates some of the actual words of Alice and Calvin Trillin, but the play goes beyond literal representation and expresses a universal story about a remarkable marriage and a woman who is a muse, mother, wife, and part of the second wave of feminism.

Book by Joseph Stein and Alan Jay Lerner
Music by Burton Lane
Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner

In a picturesque Italian village, Carmelina has raised her teenage daughter to believe her father was an American who died heroically in World War II—all the while collecting child support checks from three American soldiers, each of whom thinks he is the girl’s father. Complications arise when all three soldiers show up at the same time for a reunion.

INTELLIGENCE

Sarah McIntyre, a presidential appointee parachuted into the Foreign Service, has been assigned two wary young diplomats to develop her pet project: New Training Scenarios for the Resolution of Intractable Global Situations. The three begin to role-play, led by a charismatic woman experienced in persuading men to lay down arms. Suddenly, a rebel group lashes out in a distant country, destroying the tenuous peace recently negotiated by McIntyre. The women’s role-playing becomes increasingly charged, pushing them deeper into the bodies and minds of violent insurgents. Meanwhile, as Washington undergoes its own regime change, their work becomes active weaponry for Sarah’s political enemies.
