Extended & Moving to Queens!
After a nearly sold out run at UNDER St. Marks, The Edinburgh Fringe Hit moves to The Court Square Theater in Long Island City for 12 performances.
A 62-year-old woman in an insane asylum closes her eyes and becomes a 28-year-old stand-up comedian.
Inspired by personal experience, the delivery (not material) of Chappelle, Christopher Nolan films, Netflix's Russian Doll and HBO's Hacks, the show is an intimate blend of stand-up, theatre and time travel starring NYC comedian and actress Maria DeCotis* (Broadway, Vogue, Rolling Stone) as comedian Lynn T. Walsh.
The show is dedicated to anyone, especially young mothers of the 80s, 90s and early 2000s, who society wrote off as crazy instead of giving them an opportunity to live.
Before The Drugs Kick In made its world premiere at the 2023 Edinburgh Festival Fringe to multiple five and four star reviews while being nominated for two of the festival's biggest awards, the BBC Writersroom Popcorn Award for Best New Writing and the Mental Health Foundation Fringe Award. The play is written, directed and produced by comedian and playwright Mike Lemme with movement direction by Mandy Gordon.
