ABOUT THE PLAY : “Pizzazz” by Hugh Leonard is a cleverly plotted, effervescent comedy about relationships. With its compelling play of words, Pizzazz tells the story of two strangers – Marion and Dr. Conroy, who are inadvertently stranded on a boat jetty on the river Shannon waiting for an indefinite boat strike to end.Marion, with her efficient and sensible secretary, Olivia, is already at the jetty, when Dr. Conroy, wanting to hire a cruiser-ride for him and his unwell wife, enters the jetty. Marion, who is currently bored out of her wits, finds Dr. Conroy a great target for some entertainment – but the decorous Dr. Conroy doesn’t quite think so. In the long, tedious wait for the boat strike to end, the vivacious Marion, along with her sectary, Olivia, draws Dr. Conroy into an intriguing game – of relationships! Soon, Mrs. Hand (the elderly cleaning lady) and Rooney (the crazy desk clerk) also get caught up in this wildly insane drama. Marion manages to weave all these characters into a fantastic, make-believe and dynamic narrative that approaches human relationships in the most unusual (and may we add, hilarious?) way. With its fair share of idiosyncrasies, quirkiness, persistence and insecurities, Pizzazz is a loveable comedy of trials (but mostly errors) … and that indefinable “something”.

ABOUT DRAMANON : Dramanon (Dramatists Anonymous) is a theater group that was orginally founded in Manipal in 1991 and more recently in 2007 a Bangalore Chapter was established. Dramanon has staged around 20 productions till date and very recently we staged 4 shows of “The Original Last Wish Baby”, a political satire at both Alliance De Francaise (Feb, 2007) and The Rangashankara (May, 2007).
