October 13 @ 8:00 pm - October 28 @ 8:00 pm

PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE . . . .

The Kathie Rasmussen Women’s Theatre (Krass) presents “The Mineola Twins: A Comedy in Six Scenes, Four Dreams, and (at least) Six Wigs”.

By Paula Vogel; Directed by Juli Johnson

About the play:

This socio-political satire barrels through women’s experience and the women’s movement over more than three decades in post-World War II America, as seen through the lives of identical twins, Myra and Myrna, from Mineola, New York. The play takes place during the Eisenhower Administration; then at the start of the Nixon Administration; and, finally, during the Bush Administration.

“Ms Vogel’s script is most ingenious…The sisters’ opposition, neatly representing the schism between right and left in the United States, is self-destructive, and each subliminally longs for connection with the other…As the nightmare spins itself out, fears of nuclear attack, sexual predation and familial estrangement meld in a way that haunts even as it teases.” —The

New York Times

The Mineola Twins is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
