Play: Parallel Lives: The Kathy and Mo Show Abridged

Playwrights: Kathy Najimy and Mo Gaffney updated and revived (hence, “abridged”) by Gioia Marchese and Emily Schweitz)

Synopsis: Two Supreme Beings plan the beginning of the world with the relish of two slightly sadistic suburban wives decorating a living room. First, they decide on the color scheme of the races, a little concerned that white people will feel slighted being such a boring color. Then they create sex and the sexes. Afraid women will have too many advantages, the Beings decide to make childbirth painful and to give men enormous egos as compensation. From this moment on, the audience is whisked through the outrageous universe of Kathy and Mo, where two actresses play men and women struggling through the common rituals of modern life

Tag: With boundless energy, Parallel Lives examines the ongoing quest to find parity and love in a contest handicapped by capricious gods—or in this case, goddesses.
