2Shot The Show:
Grace and Angelica are in the prime of their life, and on the loose in New York City chasing their dreams!
Unfocused, delusional actresses turned playwrights, Grace Rinaldi and Angelica Rao channel the energy of their favorite playwright, David Mamet, hoping to create a vehicle to stardom. Act 1, Scene 1 is as far as the hopeful stars get before the characters they create, Dianna and Suzanna, come to life, rebel against their creators, and chart a course of their own!
Grace and Angelica are determined to finish their play in spite of their rebellious creations but they don’t always agree on how to do it — limitless distractions, derailing encounters, zany predicaments and schemes, and the meddling of Dianna and Suzanna sabotage them at every turn.
Our determined donnas however, will not be deterred. A glass of Prosecco, a bowl of linguini, a little broccoli rabe and just a few cookies and a caffe shakerato during writing sessions is all the fuel they need to propel them to reach their dream!
2Shot is a “21st century new wave” project — An alternative comedy, totally improvised and shot with a Flip Video camera in guerilla style complete with impromptu car chases through the cobblestone streets of Greenwich Village and the Meatpacking District. The spur-of-the-moment filming allows for guest star appearances and echoes the do-it-yourself spirit of the show’s stars and creators.
