The House of Yes

A man and his fiancee visit his warped clan, complete with a dark mansion and incestuous twin sister

I was one of two Production Managers for the play The House of Yes. As a Production Manager, my co-Production Manager and I made sure that the show schedule stayed on track, especially given the tight timelines of plays in our organization. We also settled any disputes or conflicts that happens during production arising from anything such as miscommuncations or late order shipments. Production managers also make sure that the runs of the play leading up to the final performances run as they should and coordinate with every staff member to resolve issues should they arise.

"In Wendy MacLeod's obsidian-black comedy, The Pascals, for whom the clock stopped with the Kennedy assasination, are shut in as a Thankgiving hurricane swirls outside. Arriving ahead of the storm's eye are Jackie-O's twin brother, Marty and his fiancee Lesly. The obsessive Jackie is keen to renew her long-running incestuous affair with Marty, which is fine by the mother, who's still lamenting her husband's desertion, and by puppyish younger brother Anthony who immediately desires Lesly. The resulting battle over Marty becomes something of a class struggle between the Pascals' poetic insanity and Lesly's plebian pragmatism." --Steven Mikulan, LA Weekly
