Tongue in Cheek Theater Productions has announced its spring 2013 production, a revival of Elizabeth Meriwether's dark comedy, The Mistakes Madeline Made.
Plot summary: When recent grad Edna (Shelley Little) takes a job assisting a wealthy family, she is visited by visions of her late brother Buddy (Jeremy PatRick Hamilton) and micromanaged by an insipid boss, Beth (Jake Lipman), compelling her to rebel with the help of quirky co-worker Wilson (A.J. Heekin). Rounding out the ensemble is Joe Mullen, playing a series of pompous writers Edna dates.
Tongue in Cheek's production team for The Mistakes Madeline Made is comprised of director Brock H. Hill (Planetary Connections 2012 nominee for Civilization!), assistant director Allison Lemel, with sound design by Philip Rothman (NYIT Award nominee for Tongue in Cheek's 2010 production of Proof) and production design by Jake Lipman. Elizabeth Meriwether's other plays include Nicky Goes Goth, Heddatron and Oliver, with upcoming commissions from Yale Repertory Theatre, Ars Nova, and Manhattan Theatre Club; she is also the creator and producer of the Fox television show New Girl starring Zooey Deschanel.
This production marks Tongue in Cheek's 22nd production since the company's founding in 2006. Tongue in Cheek Theater's mission is to produce thought-provoking comedies. Of its October 2012 production of Our Town, NYTheatre.com wrote, "With careful attention to detail, and a commitment to honest storytelling, Lipman and her crew have [accented the universality] in a quite remarkable way."
