Hot 'N' Throbbing

       

     This off-off Broadway play by Paula Vogel is a dark comedy about a single mother, Charlene, who writes erotic women's scripts as a means of supporting herself and her two teenage children.  The daughter is rebellious and disrespqectful; the son is confused and full of anger at the absence of his father (Clyde).

    Elias plays Clyde, Charlene's abusive, alcoholic ex-husband, who manages to come back into her life, even with a restraining order against him.   The play is told from Charlene's perspective, and as she types her scripts, we hear the voices of her 'characters' in her head acted out simultaneously.  Her real life comes into focus with the arrival of Clyde, and scenes from the past and present are replayed in her head, to comedic and then tragic results. 

    This play was performed at the Peter Norton Theater, 555 West 42nd Street, through May 1, 2005.
