Progress is the last thing on the minds of some members of the Price family, but in This Will All Be Yours, the modern era (of 1979) lands on everyone's doorstep -- sometimes gently and others with a thud. Not everyone in the Price family feels the same about change but by the time they figure out that the landscape has been shifted, it may be too late to save their way of life. One of the featured plays at the 2014 Midtown International Theatre Festival, This Will All Be Yours is a unique and compelling family drama with no easy answers. Learn More

“Five stars! Sensational!” —Hairline Fringe
In this wry, energetic autobiographical adventure play, No Parole takes the audience on a kaleidoscopic journey through the real life of his flamboyant, live-for-the-moment con artist mother, who has no trouble posing as an attorney, professor, daycare worker, or nun —- as seen through the eyes of the young son who acts as her look-out, bail, partner-in-crime, and follows her across borders, into jail, and finally to the end of the road.
Performer Carlo D’Amore plays all the characters, from his mother as a vibrant, young woman, to her 60 year-old stroke-battered self, as well as himself as a child, teenager, and adult, his brother, father, various law enforcement officials, doctors, and others taken in by his mother’s imaginative schemes — which run the gamut from shoplifting to international drug smuggling. Traveling from their native Peru, bypassing Mexican border officials without legal Visas, and into the promised land of the U.S., from the Hollywood Hills to an illegal New York City walk-up, No Parole provides a vivid, hilarious look into the life of an extraordinary woman who saw the world as her playground, and the son who must deal with his mothers very unique addiction.
An actor, playwright, director, and educator with over twenty-two years of experience in the theatre, Carlo D’Amore has been involved in groundbreaking productions across the country.

Regional acting credits include roles with San Diego Repertory Theatre, two seasons with the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival (Shakespeare in the Park), and three productions at the legendary Magic Theater, including two collaborations with Pulitzer-winning playwright Nilo Cruz. His work in film and television includes collaborations with Spike Lee, Anjelica Huston, and OZ director Tom Fontana.
