The tumultuous lives of stand-ups get their due in the new comedy Against The Wall. Based on playwright Charlie Mount's real-life experiences working as a comedian in New York, this theatrical premiere follows volatile young funny man Jeff, who turns to hostility in front of the mic when life stops having meaning away from it. Worried he's heading for a crash, Jeff's best friend sets him up with a beautiful performance artist whose environmentalism masks her own deep well of pain and psychic distress. Together, these two angst-ridden souls begin knocking down each other's walls, uncovering truths about their own comedic sensibilities, and something like love. Learn More

A good first act was followed by a disappointingly poor second act. This story has been done before, e.g. in "Naming Names." Unfortunately, neither play has dealt very well with a very important historical time, namely the Hollywood Black List.
Written by Allan Manings
Directed by John Gallogly
Produced by Jerry Goldstein and John Gallogly
with Paul Denniston, Steve Franken, Alan Freeman, Maria Kress, Roy Vongtama
