Sing along: a-b-c-d-e-f-g-h-i-j-k-elemenopea. Takes you back, doesn't it? How many of us thought that was one long name for a letter in the middle of the alphabet? Well, one of the two sisters in Molly Smith Metzler's charming, funny play Elemeno Pea was convinced of it, and it became a lifelong source of embarrassment that had a powerful impact on her life choices. Boston Playwrights' Theatre presents the Boston premiere of Metzler's own revision of her 2011 play, set at the end of the summer on Martha's Vineyard, where a couple of blue collar siblings from Buffalo are the proverbial sore thumbs amongst the glad-handers with their pink pants and new money.
Happy opening to Molly Smith Metzler and Actors Theatre of Louisville on this opening night of Cry it Out, part of the 41st Humana Festival of New American Plays!
...but only because she's a writer for the Netflix original series Orange is the New Black! Look for her work next year in season five!
