PLAYWRIGHT JONATHAN KRAVETZ
Hailed as a "sexy, erudite farce" (CriticalRant.com), THE BEAST IN MY PANTS is a wildly exhilarating new comedy from rising playwright Jonathan Kravetz that follows the romantic vicissitudes of six outrageous characters: Marlon, an innocent flasher, who loves Pam; she loves the arrogant psychotherapist Adam Applebaum, because she can only love a genius. Applebaum loves Steve, the cop, who wants to win his wife’s affections. But Flame, Steve’s wife, can only love men who don’t respect her. Marlon's mother, the homicidal Mrs. Rivington tries to protect her son from the world. The Beast rules all.
Directed by Jessi D. Hill (The New Group, Ensemble Studio Theatre; Associate Artistic Director of terraNOVA Collective), these free but limited seating readings offer audiences a unique opportunity to engage with a colorful and hysterical new work from one of New York's brightest emerging talents.
