ENGLEWOOD, FLA. – This is a press release, pre­sented in the for­mat in which it was sent:


Lemon Bay Play­house Presents “Annoyance”

For the open­ing pro­duc­tion of its 31st Sea­son, the Lemon Bay Play­house will present “Annoy­ance”, writ­ten by Sam Bobrick. This “adult” com­edy, directed by Michele Strauss, will open on Sep­tem­ber 6 and run through Sep­tem­ber 24, 2017.

Audi­ences will enjoy the twists and turns of this clever com­edy. In the first scene a very annoy­ing man goes to see a woman ther­a­pist in the hopes that she will help him become less annoy­ing. He dri­ves her over the edge. In the sec­ond scene he sees her hus­band, also a ther­a­pist, and dri­ves him over the edge. In the third scene he sees both ther­a­pists, who have decided to take dras­tic mea­sures to rid the world of this most obnox­ious man. Of course it doesn’t go as planned. This show con­tains some adult sub­ject mat­ter and language.

The direc­tor remarks that the title of this play, “Annoy­ance”, says it all. Michele asks, have you ever noticed that some peo­ple are gifted with the capa­bil­ity of get­ting on our last nerve end­ing, mak­ing us go mad with frus­tra­tion? She notes that this play explores the dynam­ics between an annoy­ing per­son and not just one, but two per­fectly sane indi­vid­u­als, who are appointed with the task of help­ing this annoy­ance to become nor­mal. When it appears that they may be less than suc­cess­ful, the theme of the play poses an all too real and pow­er­ful ques­tion: Can a sane per­son really aid an annoy­ing per­son to become nor­mal, or does an annoy­ing per­son make a per­fectly sane per­son lose their grip on real­ity? This play is a hilar­i­ous adult com­edy that takes a mature look at the effects frus­trat­ing peo­ple can have on typ­i­cally nor­mal ones. They say that 1 in 3 peo­ple are extremely annoy­ing. So, look to your left, then look to your right. If both of the peo­ple you are sit­ting between look nor­mal, then…wink, wink, nudge, nudge!
