Joe & Betty brings us into the darkly comic world of an impoverished, disintegrating family in the Catskills of the 1950s. 16 Routines takes us on a surreal comic journey into a panicked mind of an actor who has forgotten his lines. Mrs. Feuerstein depicts a Holocaust survivor plotting revenge on a German couple by writing them into her play.
Brooklyn-born Murray Mednick founded the Padua Hills Playwrights workshop/Festival (now Padua Playwrights) in 1978. He was honored with the American Theater Critic's Association Best New Play Citation for Joe & Betty in 2002, and has received two Rockefeller grants, a Guggenheim Fellowship, an OBIE and several Bay Area Critics Awards.
