Play in two acts unleashes humor columnist Jeff Kramer’s new comedic canine romp.
Award-winning Syracuse New Times columnist and playwright Jeff Kramer delivers his third, full-length comedy, “The Golden Bitch,” developed with the assistance of Armory Square Playwrights.
The plot revolves around a dinner party, which descends into a dog fight when one couple announces a surprise family addition. Social conceits tumble and friendships are tested as the four misbehaving humans dig up messy secrets and defend moral turf with fangs bared. “The Golden Bitch” will be performed by an ensemble of award-winning actors: Katheryn Guyette, Moe Harrington, Edward Mastin and Michael O’Neill.
Kramer writes a popular humor column every other week in the Syracuse New Times, and formerly for the Syracuse Post-Standard. As a playwright, he wrote and co-produced “Lowdown Lies” at the Redhouse in 2008, which won an S.A.L.T. award for best original production, and “Reaching for Marsby,” which debuted at the Civic Center in 2013.
Len Fonte directs the production. Fonte has directed more than 40 productions, including the world premieres of Jeff Kramer’s “Lowdown Lies” and “Reaching for Marsby.” As a playwright, his works — among others — include “Melagrana,” produced by CNY Playhouse; 2009 SALT Award winner “Werewolf,” produced by Rarely Done Productions; and “Wasted Bread,” produced by Armory Square Playhouse.
At the first Syracuse Area Live Theatre Youth awards (SALTYs), Len was voted best director, distinguished educator, and was presented the lifetime achievement award. He is an adjunct instructor at Syracuse University’s Department of Drama and a theater critic for the Post-Standard. Len is a founding member of Armory Square Playwrights.
