Martini with a Twist
Five Plays by Clem Martini
About this Item
Absurdity reigns in multiple award-winning author and playwright Clem Martini's newest collection of work, Martini with a Twist--five plays spanning two decades of Martini's career, from 1989 to 2009.
A lonely elephant handler befriends the half-blind woman who drove through his yard, a severed head in a suitcase life support system is given a second chance at life, a quiet shut-in wrestles with the jealous ghost of his wife, a young woman with the ability to smell lies struggles to make new friends, and a mismatched pod of whales in the Pacific Ocean struggle with identity, love, and interspecies dating. With a sharp tongue and impeccable comedic timing, Martini's characters resonate beyond their impossible situations, their fears and hesitations all too human.
