Relatively Speaking - 3 Plays, One Great Evening, by Woody Allen, Elaine May and Ethan Coen
Actors Ensemble of Berkeley presents the first production of their 2014 season - RELATIVELY SPEAKING - three one acts by three comedic geniuses, performed together for one great night of theatre - start your New Year off with Comedy!

Woody Allen's "Honeymoon Motel" - Let's just say this wasn't what the groom had in mind - a hilarious farce reminiscent of "Room Service".  Directed by Colin Johnson , who directed our fantastic "Noises Off" from 2012.

Elaine May's "George is Dead" - Doreen has just lost her husband.  Carla may qualify as her only friend.  But really she's just the daughter of Doreen's favorite nanny.  Directed by Susannah Wood, most recently in "Fortinbras" and a woman of many talents.

Ethan Coen's "Talking Cure" - Larry is the patient, but thinks he's in charge - and his mother and father get a word in as well.  Directed by Michael Cohen, who most recently directed our 2013 production of "Fortinbras" in John Hinkel Park.

Running January 3rd - 25th at Live Oak Theatre .  Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m.  Sunday matinees January 12th and 19th at 2 p.m. Costumes by Paula Dodd Aiello .  Set design by Michael Cohen .  Light design by Robert Gudmundsson.
