JET opens season with Midwest premiere of comedy
by "Moonstruck" screenwriter John Patrick Shanley.

rutus, a writer with a bril-
liant past and blocked pres-
ent, lives off fiscal and emo-
tional royalties from earlier
achievements. His frustrations grow in
the presence of a younger writer,
Wanda, whose creativity is current.
The two, main characters in John
Patrick Shanley's play Dirty Story, reveal
themselves through their rocky relation-

The dark comedy, which opens the

"I'm glad we've been able to find
some strong feminist pieces for this sea-
son," says Evelyn Orbach, JET artistic
director. Our second comedy, which
was introduced as a staged reading last
year is really quite funny and in con-
siderable contrast to our third produc-
