Lemon Bay Playhouse Presents “Men Are Dogs”

To start off the new year Lemon Bay Playhouse has chosen “Men Are Dogs” to entertain you. The play was written by Joe Simonelli and will be directed by Ric Goodwin. The show will run from January 16 through February 10, 2019.

In this comedy we find out that Dr. Cecelia Monahan has a serious problem. As a therapist who runs a support group for single and divorced women, she must listen to a number of relationship problems from her unusual cadre of patients as well as dealing with the unsolicited advice of her live-in mother on subjects ranging from dating to cooking recipes. The doctor, however, is not above using some unorthodox methods of her own such as hiring out of work actors to role play with her patients. It is only when Cecelia meets the new substitute package delivery man that the doctor must learn to practice what she preaches!

Joe Simonelli, the playwright, will be attending three performances of this play. He will be at the theater on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, January 17, 18 and 19, 2019. At these three performances only, you will have the chance to meet a New York City playwright and actor right here at Lemon Bay Playhouse in Englewood, FL. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet the author and discuss the performance at a talk back after one of these select performances.
