"Goodbye Charles," Dark Comedy Opening at the Hollywood Fringe Festival
A dark romantic comedy about dating, marriage and death. Jill’s husband Charles mysteriously disappears after she refuses to grant him a divorce. She follows a string of clues to try and find out the secret Charles was keeping from her. One Act Play written by Gabriel Davis, directed by Kate Enge.
Disguised as a romantic play, “Goodbye Charles” takes the audience on a short, eventful journey to the darkest corners of human relationships. Individuals who love to laugh at themselves are strongly encouraged to see this play. It does not try to lecture the audience by portraying an unrealistic vision of love, but rather challenges the common concepts of what a happy life looks like.
Charles (Mark Simich) admits things a husband should never speak of, while his wife Jill (Claudia Zie/Maya Koren) tries to make him stay by convincingly stating that she “ate the divorce papers.”
"It's Complicated Company" was founded by a group of actors who met at the internationally renowned Ivana Chubbuck Studio. Claudia Zie (Jill) and Yemi Cole (Barb) initiated the idea and hired experienced film and commercial director Kate Enge to present her first stage play.
