Esther's Moustache: Debut of a New Dark Comedy
Written and Directed by Laurel Ollstein
Maddie Sternberg is the author of the sexy cartoon strip “Oh My Goddess’, and is committed to proving that her life is great – only a year after her father’s suicide. But things start to get complicated after her Grandmother Esther pops up uninvited at her Venice Beach bungalow with a trunk full of family photos and warm potato latkes. When Maddie falls for a hot messenger guy who happens to be German, her goddess cartoon character can’t take it anymore and starts giving her relationship advice. Things couldn’t get more surreal for Maddie in this darkly comic play about love, sex, heritage and letting go.
