Beside Yourself by Nick Hall

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Comedy / 2m, 2f / The ultimate mistaken identity comedy! Four actors each play two parts twins. Some married, some single, all amusingly characterized are at a motel for a study of human behavior. What a study! It takes only one twin wanting an extra marital fling to set off a hilarious chain reaction. Not only is there predictable, farcical confusion, but also a stunning surprise. A comic tour de force about who we are now. "Takes the mistaken identity ploy, gives it an imaginative contemporary twist and puts it to delightful use. . . . Uncommonly enjoyable." Miami Herald. . "Delightfully funny. But outside of the laughs, and there are many, the play also says a lot about human behavior. Beside Yourself is one of the finest ever presented in dinner theatre." Hollywood Sun Tattler. . "Hilarious, a fun filled, lightweight romp." Miami Sun Sentinel.. FEE: $75 per performance.
