"The Agony & the Agony"

  • Carpenter Square Theatre 800 West Main Street Oklahoma City, OK, 73106 United States (map)


July 7-23, 2016

a comedy by Nicky Silver
One evening, secrets are revealed, dreams are realized, and hopes are dashed. Richard Aglow is a failure. A once-promising playwright, he finds himself a virtual shut-in with only rejection letters to amuse himself. Until today. He's started writing again! And as luck would have it, inspiration has hit on the very day his wife, Lela, an aspiring actress who married Richard despite his homosexuality, has met one of New York's leading producers. This is Richard's chance, a golden opportunity to get back in the game. Of course, he'll have to overlook the fact that the producer is the man who wrote that last rejection, the one that broke Richard's spirit. The arrival of Lela's lover, his pregnant girlfriend and the ghost of one of the twentieth century's most notorious killers complicate matters further.

"THE AGONY & THE AGONY is proof, once and for all, that hard work, grit and determination almost compensate for a total lack of talent." —Jill Silver (the playwright's mother).
