Piese de Frederick Stroppel

O odisee comică a trecerii actorului prin jungla show business-ului în căutarea faimei și a împlinirii. Când e copil învață că dacă plânge este hrănit și alintat; dacă plânge prea mult este scuturat. Înarmat cu această lecție despre natura capricioasă a existenței, are multe roluri, merge la Hollywood și își găsește succesul în televiziune, are suișuri și căderi.

He has appeared from the future to ask her not to keep their date, knowing that their love affair will not work out. The woman disbelieves him but he tells her things that would otherwise be impossible for him to know. A contemporary love story with a marvelous twist.
Do Over
"O perucă şi o mustaţă. Ea, apetisantă şi seducătoare, cu o lascivitate debordantă, el spilcuit şi pus pe agăţat. Par că s-au întâlnit întâmplător şi sunt atraşi irezistibil unul de celălalt. Un spectacol savuros, de un umor suculent despre un cuplu care încearcă să-şi salveze cu orice preţ căsnicia. Atunci când obişnuinţele şi plictiseala se instituie, orice tip de subterfugiu devine salvator. Cuplul recurge la cele mai ingenioase fantezii, printre care aceea de a se deghiza, pretinzând că se întâlnesc pentru prima oară. Şi asta pentru ca totul să rămână viu şi in(ex)citant". (Mihaela Michailov)
