Opening Soon


“With This Ring






Joe Simonelli





Directed  by

 Donna Jeanne





A play written specifically with Valentine's Day in mind. "With This Ring" is the story of a wedding band that travels over five generations and the visceral effect it has on those couples who come to possess it. The ring is first presented to an Irish immigrant by her husband at the turn of the nineteenth century. It then skips a generation in the next scene in the 1960's as the couple's grandson inherits it, has it inscribed and presents it to his new wife. In Scene Three the ring becomes a point of contention in the mid -eighties between an estranged couple contemplating a divorce. It comes full circle in the last scene where it finds its way to an engaged couple in 2007 and a special visitor who is coming from out of state for their wedding.




'"With This Ring" is a must see! Mr. Simonelli writes dialouge in a visceral style reminiscent of  Mamet and Chayefesky. A riveting evening in theatre. Go see it now!
