See Jenny Allen in the Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse production of NOT CONSTANTINOPLE, a new play by Arnie Reisman directed by MJ Bruder Munafo.
“An elderly couple settles into the Witness Protection Program in a gated community in Boca Raton. The husband unwittingly befriends a hit man with a contract on him. But when the husband develops Alzheimer’s, the hit man develops a conscience: why kill a guy who won’t even know his own name soon? Time to send another hit man – a woman with an MBA. Yes, this is a dark comedy.”
Runs through June 20. Buy tickets and get more details.

See Jenny in TURQUOISE.
TURQUOISE is a disruption-of-memory play. Exploring the interconnectedness of everything through disruption, this intergenerational comedy examines seven lives across a spectrum: a couple married 71 years; a middle-aged concert pianist with a brain injury and his loving day nurse; and two 15-year-old boys trying to figure their way through a timeless set of adolescent passions.
