Breaking the Code

Starring Shelly Best, Gul Saeed, Heather Terbell, Claire Waterhouse, Shari Howard, Marlene Matosian.Music by Ashley Jones and Paul McGarry.

Directed by Jordana Lawrence. 

Christy Pastence is a somewhat lonely 50 year old widow playwright living in the Upper West, NYC. One day she meets a young Pakistani American man named Moutaz on a park bench in Central Park. They strike up a conversation. Their friendship leads to romance. Around this time, her younger sister lands on her doorstep in need of comfort and a place to live. “Rana,” a pessimist and hypochondriac, is burdened by a nagging question: did her husband die by accident, or by suicide when he chose to lie down on train tracks during a war protest. Moutaz’s mother, Jumila, and Christy’s 28 year old daughter Toni bring their own set of life’s issues to the scenario making for a lively journey by all five characters. Each character has a code by which they are adhering to, but they are also struggling to move forward.  A Leonard Cohen poem, “I Can’t Break the Code” inspired the premise of the play.

   The concept behind the play was excellent. The actual script could have used some more work. Some scenes were so brief they consisted of only two or three lines. The actors did well.

 Spent an enjoyable time watching a believable story about a romance between an older woman and younger man and the characters around them, the sister, daughter and man's mother. I could not think of a better way to spend my time
