A celebrated crime novelist leads two different lives, one as Randall, the middle-aged husband and father, and the other as Mandy, the newly-wedded wife and stepmother. In a play that is both poignant and bitingly funny, Mandy/Randall struggles with the complexities and repercussions of an identity too vast to fit within binaries.
DIRECTOR: Thomas Ouellette
CAST: Blaine Edwards as Mandy/Randall, Eric Zivot* as August, Kody Grassett as Case, Laura Mansoori as Lauren, Rachel Comeau as Jen.

ABOUT PLAYFEST: AFTER PULSE
This season we’re dedicating PlayFest presented by Harriett’s Charitable Trust to 6 new plays plus a special reading of “The Laramie Project.” All selected plays explore issues surrounding the Pulse tragedy that occurred in Orlando in the early morning of June 12, 2016.
PlayFest is a nationally recognized program, representing one of the strongest commitments to new plays in the United States. Since its inception in 2003, PlayFest has helped nurture and develop over 100 new plays–many of which have received subsequent productions in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. Audience favorites from PlayFest are handpicked and developed into full productions in the Theater’s Signature Season.
