Description

Me & My Big Mouth Productions presents the world premiere of THE ITALIAN IN ME written and performed by Dina Morrone. Peter Flood (Jude Narita’s Coming into Passion) directs this high-energy comedy about one woman’s lesson in sex, cinema, and saints while in .

In THE ITALIAN IN ME, a doe eyed aspiring actress who has been raised by an Italian grandmother on good old fashioned values and an overabundance of Roman Catholic guilt, moves to Rome, from North America with a lot of unanswered spiritual questions, not much cash, and big dreams of working in Italian Cinema. Once in Rome, she quickly learns that things in the Eternal City are not as “Holy” or as romantic as she had imagined. When everyday life becomes a sexual obstacle course – because everyone’s trying to get into her pants – she does the only thing she knows how to do, pray. Her prayers seem to be answered when she meets up with the “Maestro” Federico Fellini. But, will this encounter turn out to be the “Dolce Vita” she was searching for?
