April 10, 2020, San Diego- Vantage A.D. Robert Salerno directed a successful run of Charles Ludlam’s The Artificial Jungle at The Point Loma Playhouse. The play is a hilarious, campy send-up of the Film Noir style of The Postman Always Rings Twice. In this pulp fiction parody, all the emotions are there, lust, greed, guilt, double-entendre, silliness, ventriloquism, and of course… MURDER.
A new play in development by The Spin Doctor is a surreal representation of the hate and divisiveness of our times today. The evil one has returned; he is ever-present. He speaks eloquently, but he preaches hate and fear. Will he succeed in leading us, yet again, into our own demise? Are he and his minions indestructible? How can we stand, speak, survive? Join us for a talkback, share your ideas to stop the spin. Come see The Spin Doctor!

Recent review from Amazon: I loved this version of Mrs Bennet. I have a soft spot for her and her nerves. Mrs Bennet has a lot to put her nerves on edge having to marry off 5 girls with little dowry and we all know Mr Bennett prefers to close the door to his study to crack open a book than to do much of anything useful. No wonder Mrs Bennet is overcome with nerves. The author of this book did a fantastic job of showing how little respect Mrs Bennet receives. It is so refreshing. I think anyone who is in a committed relationship can understand her frustrations. Her kindness and wisdom are readily apparent to all but her own family members. Mrs Bennet follows the beat of her own drum in the end reminding us all to be true to ourselves. If you are a Mrs Bennet fan, this one is for you.
