Teaching the Art of Compromise

By John Farrell

Embraceable Me, is a slight but effective comedy that brings together two people, Victor Holstein as the reluctant male Edward and Lynda Medeiros as Allison. It traces their struggles to make their lives complete after they have managed to each find the perfect mates: each other.

Allison starts the play by addressing the audience. She has found the perfect man and knows it. But for all his perfection he has a very different idea of the kind of life he wants. In the one-act, 80-minute long work, they come together. They first met as college students. Several years later they learned (at least something) about the art of compromise.

C. Ryanne Laratonda directed Victor Cahn’s effective play. She lets the two actors, with minimal costume changes, tell the story themselves (though it is sometimes hard to know when an aside is an aside, and not part of the dialogue).

Tickets are $27, $25 for seniors and $20 for students. Performances are May 15 at 8 p.m. and May 16 at 8 p.m.
