WITHOUT US THEY FALL APART
by Alexis Kozak
When two teachers get caught having an affair, everything they know gets called into question. Throw in some Chilean gods that even the Chileans haven't heard of, and you have a world that nobody wants to remember but cannot forget.
Cast: JMe Marcinczyk, Renne Panagos, PJ Benson, Alexis Kozak
Alexis studied Theatre Arts and English at Rutgers University. He spent his early 20s in Los Angeles, chasing the dream. Sometime after that, he got an MFA in Playwriting from Boston University, and now teaches high school theatre, where he often writes the fall play. He has published The Diamond as Big as the Ritz, the only current dramatic adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s eponymous short story. He also has a scene book for high school actors called The Greatest of All Time, carried by Eldridge Publishing. He loves theatre, soccer, reading, and his family…in no particular order. His new full-length play, Then One Foggy Christmas Eve, opens this Thursday at Middletown High School South.

Together the three face off to find the right equilibrium of life, laughter and the pursuit of sanity.
