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

On a deserted stretch of beach a middle-aged couple, relaxing after a picnic lunch, talk idly about home, family and their life together. She sketches, he naps, and then, suddenly, they are joined by two sea creatures — lizards who have decided to leave the ocean depths and come ashore. Initial fear, and then suspicion of each other, are soon replaced by curiosity and, before long, the humans and the lizards (who speak admirable English) are engaged in a fascinating dialogue. The lizards, who are at a very advanced stage of evolution, are contemplating the terrifying, yet exciting, possibility of embarking on life out of the water; and the couple, for whom existence has grown flat and routine, holds the answers to their most urgent questions. These answers are given with warmth, humor and poetic eloquence, and with emotional and intellectual reverberations that will linger in the heart and mind long after the play has ended.
