The Mineola Twins

Location
Studio Theatre
Room 168

By Paul Vogel, Directed by William Fisher

Tony award-winner, Paula Vogel’s The Mineola Twins is a comedy in six scenes, four dreams and (at least) six wigs, is an allegory of identical ‘good and bad’ twins Myrna and Myra, whose Culture Wars skirmishes span the Eisenhower, Nixon and Reagan/Bush years. Beautifully and sensitively written, this play is full of recognizable tropes, is directed by William Fisher and promises to be a production chock full of surprises.

"Ms. Vogel's script is most ingenious…As the nightmare spins itself out, fears of nuclear attack, sexual predation and familial estrangement meld in a way that haunts even as it teases." —The New York Times. 

Intimate and epic, hilarious and dense, Variety called The Mineola Twins “The Carol Burnett Show with a political consciousness…with go-for-broke adventurousness …divinely funny."
