And The Winner Is
Oct 12 – Oct 21, 2012
Produced/Directed by Darren Nye of Triangle Circle Players
THE STORY: And The Winner Is tells the comic story of Tyler Johnes, a self-obsessed movie star known for the “Chippen-Cop” movie franchise; Chippendale dancers by day – Cops by night. Tyler is finally nominated for an Oscar, then dies the night before the awards. Outraged at his bad luck and determined to know if he wins (even though he’s dead), he bargains with a heavenly gatekeeper to return to earth for the big night. Along the way, he drags his agent, his acting rival, his bombshell girlfriend and his ex-wife into the journey, in a wildly twisting tale of Hollywood, the afterlife, and how we are judged.
