About this title


...the title role [is] inspired in part by Oscar Wilde's fictitious, never-seen character from The Importance of Being Earnest in this fast and hilarious farce that artfully turns classic literature on its head as Bunbury joins forces with Rosaline, Romeo's never-seen obsession from Romeo and Juliet. Together, the anonymous duo invade other dramatic works such as Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf?, Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire, Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters and Edgar Allen Poe's The Raven to alter the literary legends and save the classic lovers in their tomb, inadvertently changing the course of all literature in the process. Traveling from Poe's The Raven to visit with Streetcar's Blanche and Virginia Wolf's George and Martha, Bunbury realizes what they've done, "This new literature," he wails " where's the pity? Where's the fear?" They set out to correct their correction and for Bunbury to prove that even if he is fictional, he's not a trivial character, nor is anyone else in the world...

From the Inside Flap:

What if Blanche Dubois didn't go crazy? Or the Three Sisters actually made it to Moscow? When he discovers he's only a fictitious, never seen character in a Oscar Wilde play, Bunbury joins forces with Rosaline, Romeo's never-seen obsession from Romeo and Juliet. Together they infiltrate and alter classic literature, including giving Romeo and Juliet a happy ending.

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Jean Gilpin, Kathryn Hahn, Melinda Page Hamilton, Peter Paige, Amanda Rowan, Orlando Seale, Andre Sogliuzzo, John Vickery and Matthew Wolf.
