Sex, Drugs and the Pink Banana
Pink Banana Continues Its Annual Short Theatre Tradition
By Russ Bickerstaff

An Artful Marriage – Martha Patterson’s pair of monologues about a couple who have been married for years. Mark Medrek plays a wealthy man who wants to get into art. Katie Merriman plays his wife—a woman who wishes she could have traveled when she was younger. Another wistful moment in the program, which actually ends up being really well balanced between comedy and drama. It’s pretty rare that a shorts show would have this kind of balance.
